Hi Folks, I picked up a second hand kickwheel with a motor. I don't see any identifying marks on it, but I'm pretty sure it's an Estrin. She spins freely, the motor works well, and the head is level. However, there seems to be a low spot on the flywheel so the motor (if only lightly engaged) skips a portion of the flywheel. If the motor is fully pushed down then it makes contact all around, but it still feels like there's a pulse. I'm finding that my throwing is off because of it. I have wall thickness issues and centering feels off. Is there a way to remedy this? Would a softer disc drive help (the current one looks okay- not overly hard or cracked... maybe slightly beveled on the edges)? Or do I need to get the flywheel leveled somehow?
Hello! My name is Rebekah and I'm currently working on a wonderful project that cover's the 'Arts and Crafts Movement' from the late 19th - early 20th century for BBC. At present we're looking to source an authentic Victorian kick wheel from this time period or ideally an original kick wheel to feature in our Arts doc. I am an artist myself however I thought it wiser to approach my fellow creatives in the ceramic community with this hoping that somebody out there is able to advise on the best way to approach the search. Any help would be greatly appreciated, my contact details are as follows: Production company : Lion TV E: email@example.com T: 0141 331 4996 Best, Rebekah
