I need someone with a wheel that will let me shoot in their space for 20 mins. IN NYC or Brooklyn
  2. Hi all, I just bought a used Speedball Artista Potters Wheel. Once I hit "reset" its on FULL SPEED, and a bit bumpy.. The knob on the right does NOT slow it down and won't turn the wheel head off. Suggestions on a part to replace? Motor? knob controller?
  3. I have a unique situation. I have a full time job and do pottery as a hobby. I recently bought a wheel off of Facebook marketplace for $150. The only words on it are "intelligent ceramic drawing machine" definitely not a high tech wheel and only for beginners. It works great! The only thing is as soon as I press the pedal to bring power to the wheel a very loud beeping sound sounds continuously as long as the wheel is moving. I noticed the wires to the pedal have one that looks like it isn't connected but it makes this sound even when I don't use the pedals and I only use the manual speed butt
  4. Hi folks, it's been awhile. I've still been throwing pots and being a potter. Recently I made a leach style treadle wheel and I love it. It was made with less expensive materials, pine instead of hardwood, and a couple other decisions I made that kept cost down. I'm thinking I might be able to make a Leach style Treadle Wheel for about $1000, unfinished. Maybe $1200 painted. Do the wise sages of this ceramics board have any idea if there would be any sort of market for this? Here's my thought. I've always wanted one of these wheels, and my buddy came across some abandoned homemade versio
  5. Hi there lovely potters I am based in Auckland, New Zealand. I am in need of some HELP in getting my pottery wheel to work which I bought second hand from ebay. But before buying I didn't check that it is made for US electric requirement of 115v Excitingly I opened up the box and plugged in the wheel, and that's when I realised that it wrong voltage for NZ! I bought the step down transformer from 230 to 115v 500W and hooked up the wheel again, this time the green light on the side of the wheel was lit, but still the wheel was not going. I checked the troubleshooting manual on Shim
  6. 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.
  7. I bought a used Pacifica gt 400 wheel for next to nothing today and it doesn’t work (I knew this when buying it) so I am looking for some advice. Power is on but the wheel doesn’t spin, belts are tight. The motor sounds like it wants to run but it seems to weak to turn. I am open to any ideas! (: I want to get it up and running so I can finally get started on my pottery!
  8. I am trying to find a circuit board and pedal for my Pacifica gt400. I have only found one place other than Laguna that sells them. I live in Ohio, so if there are any stores/shops please let me know! All suggestions welcome!
  9. Greetings everyone! This is my first post. I'm wanting to start a hobby studio, I've been making pottery for a few months now and think I am ready for a low-cost studio in my small space. I have been online obsessing over different wheels, and have been drawn to the Speedball Artista, considering that I can sometimes find it online for 200-250 dollars. I found a listing that offers an Artista wheel and a Skutt KS-609 ($500 for wheel and kiln, I will have to drive 6-7 hrs to get it too). ​From what I can see, Skutts are great, but I'm worried that this kiln is too small. The big plus ​i
  10. Hi everyone, I have been doing lots of research around buying my first wheel and need a bit more advice. I have been upping and upping my budget as I researched more but I have reached a max and now, and feel more lost..yet need to make a decision. If anything thought this may be helful info to regroup in one thread. I do intend to keep this wheel for long. I am not able to find any used wheels in my area (IL and surroundings) and don't mind the idea of buying new tbh. I know most advise to get nicer wheel but that is not an option now. I have already pushed my budget. if I find myself at s
  11. Hey so I'm new to the community but I have a question in regards to my Shimpo west RK-2 potters wheel. I have been searching for bats that will work with my wheel head. the wheel head on the Shimpo RK-2 has bat pin holes that are 8 inches apart but all I am only able to find Bats with Pin holes 10 inches apart. Where can I find Bats with bat pin holes 8 inches apart or find bats with no bat pin holes so that i can drill them myself?
  12. Hello everyone, I am new to the forum here. Last fall, I was given a pottery wheel by one of my mentors. She had it in her basement and hadn't used it for a while. I moved to Nevada and brought it with me, and have not had the chance to use it until now. Well, it works, but the foot pedal is stuck "down." It seems to be too loose, so it just stays "on" from its own weight. But the speeds seem correct otherwise and everything works well aside from the pedal flopping down onto itself to be on high speed all the time. I don't know what model the wheel is, and it used to be in the
  13. I have an Estrin pottery wheel with a large steel fly wheel driven by a rubber drive disc attached to an electric motor via a 5/8inch shaft. Where can I buy these drive discs? It was manufactured in BC. It works fine but I always think ahead. I trained on one of these 40 years ago so it has nostalgic appeal.
  14. I'm very excited to purchase my first pottery wheel. I'm looking at the Brent CXC or iex or the Shimpo VL Whisper. Any thoughts on either of these? From everything I have read, they both look like great wheels. I would like comments/reviews from those of you who are much more experienced using electric wheels. Thank you.
  15. I couldn't find anything via search so here it goes! What kind of maintenance should I be doing for my wheel? How often should I get into it and lubricate? It is a Shimpo, the front says 21 century metal traction drive wheel. It had been cleaned and tuned up (bought used at retail) but I have no knowledge of its on going needs, beyond that machinery can't withstand friction without maintence: so clearly, I need to know! I am aware I could call up my clay supplier and ask, however I just don't want to be the obnoxiously needy customer if I can find what I need on my own! 😊
  16. 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,
  17. I'm new here. I have just pickup a wheel, but can't find any information about on the web. It is a "The Max Wheel" Model 1500 made by "The Max Corporation" out of Washington D.C.. It's made out of heavy duty aluminium (weight a lot). It appears to have been built to handle a lot of clay. I'm trying to repair it and would like more info about it. Any leads would be greatly appreciate.
  18. Easy to guess from the title, but I am looking to buy a used wheel. I looked through the FAQ links and didn't get as clear of an answer as I'd like, so here I go! I've been working on a loaner from some friends who where generous enough to offer it up when they heard I wanted to start throwing again, but they will need it back in a few weeks. I remember using Brent wheels in school, as well as a Lockberbie kick wheel with a motor hookup but that is quite a long time ago! What models have you personally tried? What did you like or dislike? What wheel do you prefer to work on? If
  19. Hi Everyone, I found a Brent C pottery wheel that is about 20 years old for $500. I was told it was only used about 20 times. Can anyone tell me the upgrades Brent has done to their wheels since then? Are the newer Brent wheels better made? Is this a good deal? Thanks in Advance!
  20. Hi my trusty Gladstone wheel ( am in Ireland) is about 3rd hand (that I know of..) developed a slight tilt..took off the wheel head and can see slight shiny circular band where the flat axle top ( see photo) has been rubbing against the wheel head socket (see photo). Does seem to have been axle grease there but not much left...No washer of any description used.. Never had any problem before and never checked it as was no need to! Anyone got any suggestions? Would putting a rubber washer or more axle grease on it, rectify the problem? or has the wheel head metal been worn so wheel head ne
