Try laying a piece of newspaper on top while drying. It helps to keep pieces from warping while drying.

I once owned an estrin wheel. There is a hex screw on the top of the wheel head. My wheel went out of centre after a move & I had to loosen it up clean out & reset the wheel head. It took lots of lube & patience even though it wasn't rusty. Good luck.

I use all my pots & have for years. I have a dinner set consisting of demo plates & bowls, all different shapes & sizes, a teapot that didn't come out as well as I would have liked but it works. I guess you could call them a set of 1 of a kind. Some pieces are over 40 yrs. old & a little chipped but I love them all.
I think of my pots as very personal objects so hard to part with.

I have clay pizza pans that I wash with hot water. They are stored near the floor & even the dog doesn't snif or lick them. I also have bread pans & I just line them with tin foil when stored, again no smell.
