  1. 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!
  2. I have bought an old kickwheel, and am trying to get it working properly. It has a bit of a wobble, which I think is a bearing problem - here's a video of the shaft. https://www.dropbox.com/s/sz43wdw6yqoke58/20200927_175304_1 (1).mp4?dl=0 I can't get at the bearings to check/replace them. Here's a picture of the underneath. https://www.dropbox.com/s/vaniyvhc8kx98t6/20200927_175907.jpg?dl=0. I can remove the nuts on the bolts, but can't get at the bearings from underneath. I don't know the make or model I'm afraid. Here's a pic that might help identify it. https://www.dropbox.com/s/zu2w4juycjnmuhj/20200927_181055.jpg?dl=0 Any help or advice gratefully received! Cheers Robin
  3. Hi all! New to this forum and excited to connect. Due to the pandemic, I have decided to invest in my own home based studio. I recently came upon a Soldner kick wheel after years of primarily using brent/shimpo electric wheels. I’ve been searching the Internet for tips on making this transition to primarily throwing on a kick wheel, but to no avail. Does anyone have tips / tricks / recommendations on making the switch to solely throwing on a kick wheel ? Anyone have access to videos of centering on a kick wheel? Thanks!
