Has anyone used an Axner pottery wheel? Wondering about the quality and durability of one. The price is reasonable but I am looking for quality and durability so if I have to spend a little more $ I will but just trying to be frugal. Thanks for any input and I so enjoy this forum.

Skutt wheels have the most torque for motor size. The 1/3hp is plenty powerful for most everything, but it's not that much more money to go up to 1/2hp. The best thing is the large splash pan. It will keep your studio floor noticeably cleaner. I prefer the built in splash pan since it's heavier and more stable than the removable pan. It's not really any harder to clean, either.

Check out the FAQ at the beginning of the In the Studio forum. You will find lots of opinions on different brands. Have not seen any ops on the Axner though.
