Looking to buy my first wheel for home (will be in my garage). I throw porcelain including larger platters/plates so I need a two part splash pan. I’m deciding between a Brent C or CXC or a Bailey ST-X or XL. I have used a Brent but not the Bailey. Considering the Bailey given the larger splash pan, trim guard attachment and the fact that it is a bit cheaper. But don’t want to be penny wise and pound foolish.... would love some feedback from those with experience on these wheels. Thanks!
Hi, Anyone used the Frema PW-DC-AH wheel? Is it any good? I am considering buying one and can find no reviews on-line. Or can anyone recommend an similar wheel? Cheers Andy https://www.bluematchbox.co.uk/ctm-frema-potters-wheel-pwdc.html
Hi , I have an old Podmore alsager wheel, its been restored in the past. What I would like to know is can I reverse the the motor as I am a left handed potter? see pictures for reference Alsager.pdf
My 8 year old Shimpo was getting slower and slower. I called Shimpo after trying to adjust the potentiometer. That’s when I learned that it needed a new control board for $317.00. I mostly handbuild so the wheel was not used daily. I did not know that the capacitors on the control board are like a battery and the wheel needs to run to keep them charged. Sitting idle decreases their life span. Am I the only one not aware of this? Is this so with all the newer wheels? My 40 year old year old Brent has been repaired once. I bought the Shimpo for the quiet Thanks to all. Ruth
