  1. Hey everyone, just bought an old Brent, direct drive, old blue motor, and the foot pedal is marked 1973. I was cleaning years of clay and bits from the under side and didn’t realize I lost about 3/4 of the lube in the gear box, does anyone have any experience changing the lube before I try to open this thing up. thanks in advance, Sean.
  2. Hi, Would anyone know what the correct outside length is for the belt on the Brent model B? I live in England and getting branded parts is difficult and exorbitantly expensive. To be honest, I am also pretty cheap... I saw that the very badly deteriorated old belt had a code (430j 4), used that code to buy a cheap ($7 equivalent) belt. The grooves were correct but it was too long. Wrongly assumed the code covers the length. I could try and measure the very old shabby one I have, but I'm not sure if it's stretched or how good my measuring is. If anyone know the speci
  3. I was bequeathed an old Brent pottery wheel that has not been used for some time . I would like help in determining the model so that I can order parts, etc. where needed. Although I was expecting it not to be in working condition, I was surprised upon plugging it in and turning it on that the motor and wheel head ran quite smoothly. However, I suspect because of its evident age and use (or abuse) that parts will need to be repaired or replaced. This is the problem, I cannot find or determine the model number or approx date of manufacture (there are no model/serial number plates attached). The
  4. Looking for pottery wheels The new Chatham Clay Studio opening soon in Pittsboro is looking for 5 pottery wheels for our community classes to replace those destroyed by the flooding of Hurricane Florence. If you have a wheel that you're no longer using, please consider donating it to us this month, or point us in the direction of cheap used wheels. We will be happy to fetch your wheel(s) most anywhere in North Carolina with our trusty Toyota Tacoma pickup truck. Please email pictures, age of the wheel and cost to: ranchopark@gmail.com And please share this email
  5. Hi ceramics community - looking for your thoughts and guidance here. I just started in ceramics in January this year and love it. I took about (3) months of classes and have been in the community studio 9+ hours a week since I started. Where has this been all my life!? My question: I have set up my home studio on a budget to put more hours in and the last thing I'm missing is a wheel. I've been looking for the past few months and found someone selling a BRENT Model A that - based on research - I've gotten down to a reasonable price. Any suggestions on what I should look/listen f
  6. Hello, I'm new to wheel repair and have a question that most likely has a very obvious answer that I'm just missing! Haha! I have recently acquired a Brent Model 15 wheel. I just replaced the orange belt, and everything went well with that, but when I started it up and it still wouldn't spin I took another look and realised that I must be missing another belt-type part. The issue is that spinning cone is unable to make contact with the gear. Is appears that there is a ring or something of the sort missing on the gear that would usually allow the cone to grip and spin it. Would anyon
  7. I have these 2 wheels which I bought used. the brent st-50 does this more where it wont stop after the peddle has been pressed down. the motor stops but it spins like a fly wheel. the shimpoo is a master series M-1. anyway if anyone knows how to fix this thanks.
  8. I need to buy a new wheel. I’ve been throwing for about a year and a half. I’m also in the UK, which limits my options and jacks prices up. I need a wheel that: Has excellent control, so speed changes are precise and subtle. Can go very slowly. Will not speed up when I release my hands Has a pedal that stays in a fixed position (so I can step off it while the wheel runs) Right now I’m using a Shimpo Aspire. My wheel has speed and control problems. It judders or stops at very slow speeds. I’m throwing about 2kg/5lb of clay at a time. When centering
  9. Have a 1995 Brent CXC that I'm the sole owner...and the wheel turns on and spins strong and it can be switch to spin reverse no problem but the pedal will not adjust the speed from stop to fast...thought it was module in pedal, but I just replaced it and the same, just spins at one speed....... What should I check?
