That would be a problem for me also, I make a lot of tiles and I was planning to use the shelves from my old Skutt.  The Olympic does have 3" walls so the shelves are probably smaller, I'll check it out.  Thanks     Denice

You might try filling out some of you profile and let people know at least what part of the world or the US your from.  I saw one the other day at a ceramic store that someone had traded in on a full size wheel for $150.  Someone in your area might know of a deal.    Denice

Excessive return policies are bad for the consumers and the stores.  My son worked at Sears when he was in high school,  working mostly on commission he worked in lawn and garden and exercise equipment.  Customers had one year to return purchases for no reason, lawn mowers would be returned in the fall and exercise equipment in the spring.  Some people would keep it until  a few days before the year ran out.  Sears would deduct the earned commissions from the salesman paycheck when the items were returned.  Some weeks my sons paycheck was in the negative, the policy also nearly put Sears under, they no longer have it and are barely hanging on.      Denice

You might want to put a tab of clay either on the lid or the pot than can catch the opposite edge to keep the lid from sliding off if it is bumped.  Some paper clay will help it stick, hoping this makes sense I haven't had my coffee yet.  Denice

I have tried that, the stack seems  unstable, I keep a shelf about 2" off the floor permanently which helps.  I decide as long as I am buying I might as well fix the problem,  I'm not getting any younger and I have MS so I don't know what the future holds.  I understand this size is getting very popular with the aging potters.  Denice
