Shimpo Tabletop Throwing Wheel with Foot Pedal control
Choosing the right wheel
Shimpo tabletop wheels are excellent for beginners and for those needing portability. However some potters may find that a standard Shimpo fits their needs better. We recommend you try out the tabletop wheel in our showroom in Stoke (or at an authorised Potclays agent's showroom). Please contact us for more details.
