Topics I've Started
Posted 31 Oct 2012Good afternoon everyone! Currently I am a hand builder and that is all I have done since I entered ceramics. I really want to do some work on the wheel but I do not really want to and can't invest to much money right now. So I have been looking at a few beginning or rather "training" wheels :-) that I can learn on until or if I can, shall we say, take off the training wheels. In other words, I need something that if I do not get the hang of it or end up not finding it to be my cup of tea I did not invest a lot of money into it.
I have been looking at the following Wheels:
Speedball Artista Wheel
11" wheel head, 2 part splash pan included, variable speed (hand control), Micro V-belt for smooth, quiet power and long life. Convenient space for two 2.5 quart buckets, Easy to store. Optional legs available - static or foldable. New 5 year warranty! Comes with 2 free bats, and throwing bucket. It also has an optional foot pedal that can be bought separately.<a name="ClayBoss">Speedball Clay Boss Pottery Wheel
(formerly Creative Industries Clay Boss)
1/2 HP industrial motor Sturdy steel frame 1/2" thick polyethylene tabletop.
(Table Size: 26" x 21") Large 14" diameter wheel head Reversing plug allows quick change of wheel head direction Sophisticated load-sensing control – maintains wheel head speed under varying loads
If anyone has better options that are extremely affordable please let me know.. Thank you...
