Wheel.jpg
27 KB, 500x362
I want to begin to throw some clay but I don't have the resources to actually buy a wheel so I want to make my own wheel.
I have a washing machine motor that may work but I cannot imagine what else can I do.
So if any one has like the blueprints of a pottery wheel or a book or so tho make one would be appreciated

I'm currently building one for my girlfriend. Taking forever on it because we live in an apartment and she can't use it here.

You can find plans for a ghetto one with a washing machine motor online.

The motor is not a good choice though due to the fact they are a/c and heat up when you limit the power on them.

Your best bet is to find a deent sized d/c motor with PWM. Treadmills are an easy source of these.

and in RPM and hp what are the numbers??

If you mean me, I'm not 100% sure yet. Math says about 300 which is a bit high. That is also assuming the speed on the motor is accurate. Often the numbers are high. Plus I can limit it down a little if need be.

Current motor is 2.3HP Max with 1.75 HP Continuous rating. Overkill but the motor was free.
