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!
