I just bought a broken down Creative Industries Model MP from a friend but it is completely rusted over, blown fuse, everything wrong that could be wrong. Currently my husband and I are trying to rebuild the wheel and I found this link you started about finding the manual and I was wondering if there was any way you could spare a copy? I could mail a pre-stamped envelope to you or what ever is necessary. It would be really great, hope to hear from you!
Thank you so much!
I'm the proud owner of a new, very old Creative Industries Model MP potter's wheel - my first! I've been renovating it (new wheelhead, removing rust, repainting...) and will eventually need to replace a badly rusted foot pedal.
My question is: does anyone out there have an original owner's manual for these wheels? I'd really love to have a copy, and will happily pay for it!
Thanks, everyone - I look forward to participating in more discussions here!
I have an old Creative Industries MP wheel... must've bought around 1986 or so... direct from their factory... I drove down from L.A. and went and picked it up in El Cajon. I don't recall it even coming with an owner's manual back then, if it did... I don't have it anymore. I know that when I bought it Kenton Oakes had just recently purchased the company from the original owner, and they were just beginning to get their feet wet in the business. Recently, late last year I believe... Kenton sold the company to "Speedball" and they make the wheels now. I don't know what their customer service is like yet, but I suppose it will be interesting to see going forward. Have you tried contacting them yet? Sorry I couldn't be more help... good luck refurbishing your wheel.
Wow! That was a year ago already... I think I still have it if you think it would be of use. It doesn't say a whole lot. I don't know if it helped Mickey or not. Let me know, Tracey
