  1. Hello Denice and Mark, I am sure that before I begin really looking for a kiln, I would have to have a great deal more experience. I have been watching and reading the forums because it is hotter than Hell outside and I do not do well in heat and humidity. However, having said I was going to give up, I just searched again and a wheel that was way overpriced I think has been re-listed. If it is, here is a picture of the wheel head. I have not seen one look like this. Since I cannot see it in person, I am putting the picture here. Do you think it is pitted like old aluminum pans u
  2. Thank you very much. I thought it had to be very old because I have never seen anything like it before. I got interrupted in my conversations with the man because my sister-in-law died so I went to PA to be with my brother. I think my instincts on these things are growing with each one I try to find.

The person does not know anything much about it just that it has been at his house for a long time. Here is a link to a video that shows how it sounds. Old Brent Wheel Video. It is a very dark video, but it is the wheel in the picture. It sounds like some of the wheels at the college where I
  4. I did not purchase it. The lady sold it before I called her back.
  5. Do I understand correctly that all creative industries wheels are no longer supported at all--meaning that parts (belts etc. ) for them cannot be found? Would this mean you would have a wheel you could no longer repair or make work at optimal speeds?
  6. Hi, Does anyone have any experience with this older shimpo? I have found one for sale for $450. It has a 1hp motor and has been treated well. It has a 1hp motor and a large work table like a half moon that surrounds the wheel at one end of it. On Shimpo's manual page they describe it as : "The Master Series utilizes state-of-the-art components to achieve remarkable power combined with extremely smooth speed adjustment and virtually noiseless operation. Features of the M400 and M750 include: • Heavy-duty steel construction assures long service life • PWM controll
