If you are searching for a quality, foot-controlled potter's wheel, you have found it in the Brent Motor Kit for the popular, manually operated Model J unit. Operating a potter's wheel through the action of "kicking" the unit's concrete flywheel located on its bottom side, you will be taken back to a generations old art that has never really been replaced by electric operation.
Those who truly love the art of pottery turning appreciate the feel of manually turning a rounded, flattened 30 inch, 135 lb. slab of roughened concrete spinning under foot. On top of this timeless experience lays the fact that the manual units seem to always be a bit more quiet in their turning, lending the user a more peaceful creating experience.
Ever the most durable of its kind, the Brent Model J is built to last, boasting one and quarter inch reinforced steel pipe frame with the unsurpassed support of cast iron housed ball bearings for a smooth spinning experience.
The wheel head is made of 14 inch cast aluminum and is produced with concentric circles that offer the user the convenience of effortless large or small form centering while at work. The wheel head includes two removable bat pins that optionally helps with keeping splattering in check.
The table and adjustable seat are made of strong, one inch wood that is finished in easy to clean laminate.
Your purchase comes with a free splash pin and 14 inch Plast-i-Bat.
