  1. 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?
  2. I have a unique situation. I have a full time job and do pottery as a hobby. I recently bought a wheel off of Facebook marketplace for $150. The only words on it are "intelligent ceramic drawing machine" definitely not a high tech wheel and only for beginners. It works great! The only thing is as soon as I press the pedal to bring power to the wheel a very loud beeping sound sounds continuously as long as the wheel is moving. I noticed the wires to the pedal have one that looks like it isn't connected but it makes this sound even when I don't use the pedals and I only use the manual speed butt
  3. 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 versio
  4. 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 Shim
  5. Hi, I have bought an unbranded wheel from eBay that has an in-line pedal with a handle on it that is fixed to the wheel, the shaft runs through the wheel to the other side. I have a problem in that when the pedal is as far back as it will go the wheel doesn't stop turning. I wondered if anyone here knows of these types of pedals and whether there is a way to adjust it so in its back position the wheel will stop completely? Thanking you in advance, Martin.
  6. I bought a used Pacifica gt 400 wheel for next to nothing today and it doesn’t work (I knew this when buying it) so I am looking for some advice. Power is on but the wheel doesn’t spin, belts are tight. The motor sounds like it wants to run but it seems to weak to turn. I am open to any ideas! (: I want to get it up and running so I can finally get started on my pottery!
  7. I am trying to find a circuit board and pedal for my Pacifica gt400. I have only found one place other than Laguna that sells them. I live in Ohio, so if there are any stores/shops please let me know! All suggestions welcome!
  8. Hello! I technically will consider myself a beginner, but I am looking to buy a used pottery wheel. I have used a pottery wheel roughly 25 years ago, and I’m sure many advancements have been made. I found one for sale locally, and below is the only info the lady is giving me. I’d like to know if this would be a good purchase. Thanks in advance!! edit: I definitely prefer one that not a tabletop. Not a brand on it anywhere. It looks like a Brent. It is solid, no problems. I just don't use it. I bought it in a buy out from a lady who was retiring in pottery. I am selling the piece
  9. The forum gods are not being kind to me. I’ve searched and searched this forum as I’m sure there has already been a post with my question, but I cannot find it so here we are... My Pacifica gt400 wheel was acting funny, seemed “weak” and the wheel would slow when centering. Having zero-experience, naturally my first instinct was “I can fix this”, so I started taking the underside of the wheel apart. And look what I found!! Even I know that’s not right!! So I need new belts. 4 of them specifically. I see there are 42” and 50” belts on Laguna’s website. How do you properly meas
  10. I can't believe that it has been nearly 2 years since I was last active here. In that time the family took an adult ed pottery class, started appreciating and collecting other peoples work, and just recently we bought the contents of a defunct ceramic shop. And suddenly I found that we could really use a second wheel to supplement the first wheel I converted to treadmill power. And as is too often the case, I wanted it now, wanted it cheap, and could find absolutely nothing used available within a three state radius. So I made my own. I have been using this now for a couple of weeks an
  11. Hi everyone, I have been doing lots of research around buying my first wheel and need a bit more advice. I have been upping and upping my budget as I researched more but I have reached a max and now, and feel more lost..yet need to make a decision. If anything thought this may be helful info to regroup in one thread. I do intend to keep this wheel for long. I am not able to find any used wheels in my area (IL and surroundings) and don't mind the idea of buying new tbh. I know most advise to get nicer wheel but that is not an option now. I have already pushed my budget. if I find myself at s
  12. Just picked up this Creative Industries Ci wheel and can't find any info on it? It sits on an orange metal rectangle table with a brown top. It's in excellent, hardly used condition. Motor is strong and smooth... by "RAE"- does anyone know anything about it? I'm going to try to upload a pic... Also, any ideas for a splash guard that might work? I just got a new Brent CXC, as well as a used Brent C in the past month- then came across this and couldn't resist! It's a great wheel, I would just like to know more about it and hopefully get a splash guard because... well, I'm pretty messy,
