Amaco 1-101 convert to variable speed?

Recommended Posts

Hi Nicolette!

My recollection is the Amaco 1-101 was fitted with an AC motor; variable speed control of AC motors is possible, however, likely not practical for a pottery wheel - I believe most potters' wheels employ DC motors.

Poster Michaela C indicated that the original motor was an AC here (which you may have a'ready read by now): Gearbox help for an old Amaco 1-101 - Equipment Use and Repair - Ceramic Arts Daily Community 

The Ingleton potters (Ingleton Pottery - YouTube) seem to do just fine with fixed speeds.
I really like variable speed!
