Hello! I have recently gotten the itch to try my hand at wheel throwing and needed some help with the wheel I have available. My mother, a retired art teacher, has an old Amaco No. 1-101 that I would like to use. Aside from some dust, the wheel appears to be in excellent condition. The only problem is that I am a lefty, and there does not seem to be a way to reverse the direction of the wheel. Would anyone know of a modification I can make to the motor to reverse the direction? I'm not afraid to tinker with it as it's not really being used but I am unsure of what to even search for regarding how to reverse the direction a motor powers or if that is possible. I'd be especially interested in a direction toggle switch to add so my mother can continue using it as well, but will be happy just to be able to reverse it at all. Thanks for any and all help!
Hello, I recently was given an old Amaco electric potter's wheel no. 1-101. The wheel has not been used in a long time. The wheel head does not switch to the correct direction for throwing. There is also a knocking noise when the wheel is on. I have a basic diagram of the parts and wiring that came with the wheel, but can't figure out where to begin troubleshooting the problem. Any advice will be appreciated.
Just picked up this Creative Industries Ci wheel and can't find any info on it? It sits on an orange metal rectangle table with a brown top. It's in excellent, hardly used condition. Motor is strong and smooth... by "RAE"- does anyone know anything about it? I'm going to try to upload a pic... Also, any ideas for a splash guard that might work? I just got a new Brent CXC, as well as a used Brent C in the past month- then came across this and couldn't resist! It's a great wheel, I would just like to know more about it and hopefully get a splash guard because... well, I'm pretty messy, still. Looked for months for a good used wheel and nada! Then broke down and purchased a new one... now, I'm a beginner with 3 wheels and limited skills- hah! I'd be thrilled with any info you have to share... Thanks! Lj
