  1. Hi …. Wondering who could help. Have to give up my pottery and wheel due to RA ( please look after your bodies ) Haven't used the wheel in about 7 months. And before that really not much usage.I’d unplugged cleaned and in a safe corner . Now having found a buyer . Went to switch on and dead. (no sounds) Can rotate the wheel manually the pedal in right position Any clues or ideas as what could possibly be the problem ? Thank you so much and for the support over the years Nicky
  2. 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 versions that were all piecemeal and rusted. But I salvaged them and learned how to build the wheel, and it works really well. I finally have my dream wheel, and I didn't have to spend $2500 on it. Maybe there would be more treadlers if the wheel was more affordable? I'd love advice if you are in a helpful and loving spirit. Thanks all!
  3. Hi, Im desperately searching for a used pottery wheel for my wife for Christmas. Prefer electric or kick with a motor. I’m near Minneapolis but can travel a reasonable distance. Please message me if you have something. Thanks.
  4. 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?
  5. I have a Pacifica gt800 potters wheel about 4 years old. The wheel is not turning, the power light is on but nothing when push foot pedal. So there is power any ideas ?
  6. 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 Shimpo website, it said that if the two LED lights on the circuit board are not lit then the board is faulty. I followed the steps and the LED lights were not lit. But I am still in doubt that if it's a faulty/damaged board or it's something to do with wrong voltage. the seller is absolutely sure that the wheel was perfectly fine when he shipped it. I should also mention that when I first plugged in the wheel without the transformer, there was a small spark on the power socket, But I guess that it may have been the loose adaptor and I hope that I haven't blown off the motor!! Are there any folks out there who have experienced similar situation or have better knowledge of these things? Much appreciate your time. cheers, Hitesh
