Forget blobs of clay and hours of your life spent centring your pots the Giffin grip is here! We all know that turning the bottoms of leather hard pots can be a frustrating and time consuming process. Difficulties can occur in re-centring the pot as well as getting the pot firmly secured to the wheel. The world famous Giffin Grip is here to solve these problems for you.
After a simple one-time adjustment, the Giffin Grip quickly snaps on and off your wheelhead*. The Giffin Grip cuts turning time in half and makes it possible to turn shapes that might otherwise have been left unturned.
*Please note the Giffin Grip does not fit the Shimpo tabletop wheels
