In Topic: Shipping A Potter's Wheel Overseas

Yesterday, 02:03 PM

Neil is correct on the shipping cost from a big wheel maker should be cheaper.  My husband works at a company that make amusement rides, they ship replacement parts all over the world.  They get a unbelievable discount from shipping companies because of the number and size of the shipments.  The bigger the company the better the shipping cost should be.   Denice

If you could easily resale a used speedball wheel I would start out with that.   You are a beginner and it will take a couple of years before you need a better wheel.  If you have to get a different wheel perhaps the store you buy it from could build a wooden 2x4 frame around it.  My son lives in a US territory and the cheapest way to ship to him is the US mail, but he lives on  a remote island.   Denice

Rick St. John was my professor, I looked through my glazes of his and couldn't find that one.  If you get desperate I know someone who has his phone number and I could give him a call.    Denice

If you can't throw that large, I know it would be a problem for me you can always use the added coil method.  Throw it as large as you can and then add coils to the top and throw them smooth.  I usually live the walls extra thick for this method and trim the top level before adding another coil.   Denice
