  1. So, some good news. I loosened the jubilee clip and twisted the potentiometer sleeve on the shaft and felt what I can only describe as a pop. Afterwards the sleeve moved freely between 2 points within the fixed part of the potentiometer so I decided to turn the wheel on and test it manually. When I turned it on the wheel did not start spinning right away as it had before, my initial thought was that I had broken it. But to my surprise when I turned the sleeve the wheel started and got faster the more I turned. I could turn it then the other way and it came to a complete stop again.
  2. Thank you for the replies so far, you've been really helpful. Unfortunately I can't return the wheel as the eBay seller doesn't accept returns. It was sold as being a Pottery Crafts brand wheel so although it looked like the cheap Chinese ones I'd see I thought it was maybe a proper model those were based off. I was wrong and should have researched more. So I'm stuck with it for now, which isn't so bad. I've managed to throw one reasonable thing on it so far (I'm still practicing). I will see if I can make the wheel stop after loosening the hose clamp (my Dad calls them jubilee clip
  3. Hi, thanks. I had planned to do that but couldn't see an upload option when I first wrote the post. I've attached 2 images here. In the underside image you can see bolts at the end of the pedal shaft. I've adjusted these so the pedal will go as far back as possible and it still doesn't stop completely.
  4. Hi, I have bought an unbranded wheel from eBay that has an in-line pedal with a handle on it that is fixed to the wheel, the shaft runs through the wheel to the other side. I have a problem in that when the pedal is as far back as it will go the wheel doesn't stop turning. I wondered if anyone here knows of these types of pedals and whether there is a way to adjust it so in its back position the wheel will stop completely? Thanking you in advance, Martin.
