Does any body know where I can get a hold of a splash pan for a creative industries hp model. Just in case I cannot get a hold of one; does anybody have any tips on how to get or modify a splash pan that could work for it? Does anybody know of the wheel can be changed from plastic to steel?

Can you send a picture? Does the wheel head come off? See if there is a small allen scew underneath, or it may be friction fit.

I made a splash pan for my Brent CXC out of wood.

ceramics arts daily showed a splash pan made from a plastic trash can in a contest last (?) year.  look it up and see if it would work for you.  our favorite tinkerer, doc weathers, did one too, i think.

There was also a thread a few months ago of making a splash pan using a plastic wash tub cut into two sections and sliding back together with overlapped seams.  Those old CI splash pans were pretty flimsy, and would wear out in a few years-especially with student abuse. I had an MP and an HP in my HS classroom. They ran well, but the splash pans . . . . .

I asked this question a few months ago - here's a link to that post.  http://ceramicartsda...eel/#entry37342   In sum, Speedball does not sell a replacement pan (they said that CI had stopped selling replacement pans for these wheels before Speedball purchased CI).  Someone indicated that a Pacifica splash pan would work, however I have not been able to test that.  I can confirm that the Brent splash pan doesn't fit.  There was also a suggestion to forego the splash pan and use a sponge to catch water as it comes off the wheel head.

 

If you find something that does work, please let us know!
