By far the quietest potter’s wheel on the market, the VL-Whisper is a great choice for the classroom or studio.
It features a direct-drive, belt-less system, brushless 1/2 HP DC motor with a speed range of 0–250 rpm, a two-piece splash pan, and a 14" alloy wheel head (with bat pins) that centers up to 100 lbs (45 kg) of clay. The wheel head turns freely at 0 rpm, allowing use as a banding wheel. A remote foot pedal electronically controls the speed, and the reversible motor suits both left-handed and right-handed potters.
The VL-Whisper comes with three adjustable, removable legs that offer five different heights for floor and tabletop use (11", 18", 19", 20", and 21"), to accommodate adults, children, and individuals with disabilities. Remove the legs and the wheel stores compactly.
Shipping weight is 122 lbs (55 kg).
The VL-Whisper carries a two-year manufacturer’s warranty.
