POWER-DRIVE A KITCHEN STOOL FOR A LOW-COST POTTER'S WHEEL
ALTHOUGH the traditional kick wheel is as old as the art of pottery throwing, modern beginners and advanced artists in clay appreciate the smooth action, and expecially the uniform speeds of a motor-driven wheel.
POWER drive enables the pottery worker to give full attention to the throwing process, and eliminates the necessity of making compensations for any irregularities caused by variations in the speed of the wheel.
Using an ordinary steel kitchen stool, a 9-in aluminum sanding disk, a 9-to-1 right-angle speed reducer (from Home Depot), and a 1/4 hp motor, you can build a variable-speed potter's wheel, on which you can turn out work of professional quality.
The illustration above pictures the completed unit.
