I bought a used Creative Industries, Clay Boss electric wheel. The foot pedal is now malfunctioning. It seems like I need to replace this specific piece. Not sure where I should order this or what it is called. I have not gotten any responses from Speedball.

good luck, my experience with speedball has been nothing short of dismal.  Where are you located?

Have you taken it apart and looked at it? I had a malfunctioning foot pedal and took the thing apart and it's pretty simple inside. My issue was moisture and I used a hair dryer and it started working again.  inside mine was just a few wires. I can't imagine it's too hard to fix but agin for me it was just moisture.

Sorry my picture won't upload! I really appreciate the responses.

 

I'll try to describe the piece.....its a white plastic piece about 6 inches long. Triangular shaped with 'teeth' on one end. The teeth seem to be worn down.

Sometimes when I press down on the foot pedal is works, but most of the time the wheel just simply doesn't spin. 

 

If this part cannot be replaced, should I get a new foot pedal? where can this be ordered?

 

I'm a newbie!

pretty disappointed with the service! I live in sonoma county. I live close to Creative Ceramics and Glass, they told me I should just order the part myself so I don't have to pay them to do it. The owner also did not know what the name of the part is!

sometimes it spins, but most of the time the foot pedal doesn't seem to be communicating with the wheel
