I'm brand new to ceramics and throwing, and want to get a starter wheel. Wondering if anyone can tell me any models to keep an eye out for USED, or what a good option would be that's not too steep NEW. I can't find very much out there that speaks to the history of machines, or good machines to look out for used. I found a Creative Industries MP that powers up and spins, but doesn't have the pedal so it's at 1 speed. From what I've learned here, CI is no longer around, so getting a replacement pedal seems a near impossible feat. Is this machine still worth it even at 1-speed? Thanks for any info, and apologies for the noviceness Best, R
So, after 10 years of using other people's wheels, I am finally going to get my own. I am only 23 but throwing already hurts my back when I am on it too long so I want to get one that I can eventually use standing up. My question is: when you raise your wheel to the right height for standing, isn't the electrical cord on the pedal too short to reach the floor? (I do want to use my foot to control it rather than having it next to the wheel head.) How have you guys dealt with this? Is it even possible to have it reach the floor? Should I just buy a wheel with a really long pedal cord? If so, any suggestions for models that have that?
