Nice, affordable banding wheel
Comments about Amaco No. 5 Decorating Wheel:
I like this banding wheel. I'm quite happy with it. There are swankier ones out there, but they're twice the price.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Amaco awesome decorating Wheel
from Globe, Arizona
This is one of the most useful tools I use in ceramics. It is perfect for glazing, decorating and molding round objects. I almost can't work without it! Thanks Amaco, for making yours better than others I have used!

Easy to use. For all ages!
Amaco Deco Wheel - No quality control!
By Clay Gal
from Carmel, CA
Apparently there isn't any quality control from the manufacturer - very rough and poorly done. The plastic wrap it comes in says "may be sharp edges" - that is correct at a minimum! Good but simple design in that you can bolt it to a table top. It is lighter weight then I expected. Wouldn't buy again!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
A must have for all sorts of projects
By Fox Lake Mum
from Northern Michigan
I use this for painting pottery, but my husband keeps trying to use it for his own projects...I have used this brand before in another country and it works really well.
By Kerry K.
from Sacramento, CA
Very nice product, only problem is a few of the circular grooves in the top plate aren't as deep and uniform as the rest. In fact a few sections of the grooves have no depth at all. But I will learn to work with that.
Dick Blick comes through
from Oxford, MS
I am a partner in a contemporary ceramic studio, and currently use this brand of decorating wheel as a tool for my customers. We have a workshop scheduled using this wheel, and needed to purchase about a dozen more to have enough for all participants to have a wheel. I checked several suppliers to find the best deal - and once again, dick blick came to the front of the line offering the same top quality wheel as we use at a price that we could afford. Shop around and see for yourself.

Banding Wheel not what I expected
from Calgary, Alberta
I hand paint drinking glasses - lots of them. This is my livlihood. I needed two new banding wheels and bought the Amaco No 5 Decorating wheel as I thought it the best on offer. The wheel is too light. It slips on the table. It does not spin fast enough. I have used WD40 to no avail. I simply can't use them
