Sold out.

The RK-3D represents the next generation of potter’s wheels.
Responsive, high torque at all speeds, powerful and quiet.
Not just quiet, but QUIET!
This wheel is by far the quietest on the market; you can actually throw and hear yourself think at the same time...

The exterior of the RK-3D resembles the RK-10, but that’s where the similarities end!
This new wheel features a brushless DC motor and direct drive (no belt) system.
The motor is electronically controlled and operated by a fixed foot pedal and hand lever.
It’s reversible, and the steel body is durable under all conditions.
A 12” wheel-head and two-piece splash pan are included as standard features.
