The Wheel has Gone!

At last i have managed to get my Wenger Kick wheel into the estate car and over to Padfield Engineering for it’s conversion to a pedal kick Wheel. This is how in looks at the moment as a stand up kick wheel. I must make a point here as i write this as i have been told that this is in fact a turning Wheel (for turning pots) and not as such a potters Wheel! Although people use them as potters Wheels. Throwing pots on this type of Wheel has been awkward at the best of times as its meant the repositioning of you body as you have been throwing. Standing up and kicking at the same time does not enabled your body to be positioned over the pots. So as you look at the picture just under the clay tray there will be a seat and futher down the wheel the existing kick mechanism will be converted so it is in reach of my right or left foot. As i have mentioned in another post i have ran with what i had got because of money and practicalitys. I will take lots of detailed pictures of the conversion and post them when its done. This will be good i hope; and hopefully a cheaper way for people to get a kick Wheel.
