The fact that Model K has been on the market since the mid 60s is a true testament to its quality and longevity. The solid construction of heavy-duty welded steel pipe, a large table area providing space for a water bucket, tools, bats, and clay makes this wheel a durable natural for the classroom or the professional potter. It is no wonder this wheel can be found in schools, colleges, and institutions throughout the world. As a bonus, the splash pan is included with your initial purchase and a 5-year limited warranty letting you know that we are confident about its quality.
If you love Model K, you will love Model EK even more. It contains everything you love about Model K plus an additional motor. Along with its motorized kick wheel and optional reversing switch, the Model EK is driven by a heavy duty 1/3 hp motor with a rubber friction drive. The mechanisms for the drive motor are very easy and simple to operate making throwing a breeze. To activate the wheel, all you have to do is press down on the foot pedal to engage the rubber drive against the edge of the wheel. It is extremely quiet and can be switched back to manual when the drive is disengaged. This model is so powerful that it can even center up to 50 lbs. of clay! How great is that? If you are still not convinced, do not hesitate to contact anyone of ourcustomer service representative. They would be more than happy to help you decide which wheel is best for you.
