I also have a model A. I have had it for almost 40 yrs and through I have other wheels this one is still running very well. I also use it for trimming only but the longevity of it is why I buy Brent wheels.

You folks are wonderful. I was introduced to the world of clay many...many years ago and but put it aside when kids, family and job issues took root in my life. With a great support system I resurrected my passion a few years ago and have a wonderful studio in my house. I sort of shyed away from joining The Ceramic Community as I am a hobbyist thou a serious one. This is my first post and I am kicking myself for not joining sooner. Most of the things you all have mentioned I knew at one time but not having interaction with other "mud" minded people I sort of second guess myself and forget the life of the clay. I'll try and post some pics and show you my issue. I do like them actually but sometimes you just need a flat plate! Thanks all!

Are you throwing or using slabs?

These plates an bowls were slabs I rolled with a slab roller and shaped on a plaster bat and finnished the foot on the wheel.

Are your kiln shelves flat? or warped? As well as all Neil said above?

No shelves are fine......
