The most affordable wheel options from the most trusted name in pottery, the Brent Ie series pottery wheels are ideal for home studios and for traveling to workshops and demonstrations.
The redesigned Brent IE Series wheels are height-adjustable for use on a tabletop or as a floor model. The wheel height ranges from 13" (33 cm) for tabletop use and ease of storage to 20–25" (51–64 cm) for use as a floor model. The legs can be adjusted easily by telescoping and locking them into place. A longer 9" (23 cm) power cord attaches the foot pedal to the wheel to facilitate use as a tabletop wheel.
Brent IE Series wheels feature an indestructible tabletop made of moisture-resistant, corrosion-proof thermo-plastic, supported by a rigid all-steel frame. A permanent magnet DC motor provides dependable variable speed control, while a self-tensioning four-groove poly v drive belt holds tight for maximum performance.
Series IE wheels include the standard Brent cast aluminum foot pedal, delivering smooth control and a speed range of 0–240 rpm. All IE wheels now include a Brent splash pan.
The Model IE with Reversing Switch has identical features and 1.4 HP, 6 amp motor to the Brent IE, but this model includes an optional reversing switch for added versatility and use by left-handed as well as right-handed throwers. The reversing switch offers a neutral "safety" position to assure smooth transitions when changing directions, allowing the wheel head to spin freely in both directions as a banding/decorating wheel.
Included with the IE are a free How to Throw on a Potter's Wheel DVD, a splash pan, and a 12" (30 cm) Plasti-Bat.
Includes a 5-year manufacturer's warranty. Weighs 85 lb (39 kg).
