Turning An Electric Pottery Wheel Into a Kick Wheel?I recently acquired a Creative Industries Model JR pottery wheel that has had all of its electrical components removed. Does anyone know how I could convert this to a kick wheel? I have an idea in progress that works along the lines of the old manual sewing machines. I am stuck on the pulley positioning, any advice would be appreciated.
Cheap Kiln?I am in a need of help. I am trying to find a cheap kiln to buy for my projects. Any suggestions?
Designs to Paint on Pottery?Does anyone know where I can get pictures or designs to paint onto blank pottery plates or platters? I buy the fired bisque plates and then paint pictures with ceramic paint and get them fired. Fruit and vegetable or floral ideas are effective. Maybe some ideas for Christmas?
Repairing a Pottery Wheel?I have an old Seven Skill SSB-2 electric potters wheel, the mounting grommets have split and I cannot find anywhere to get more. Does anyone have any ideas where to locate replacement parts? Or know if there are any substitution pieces that would save this old wheel.
