The best there is.

Comments about Shimpo Banding Wheels:
The quality of this banding wheel is simply superior. It spins dead true on center and there is absolutely no wobble. The registration rings are perfectly true and the registration holes are all precisely positioned. It weighs 28 pounds and is solid as a rock. There isn't any better wheel to be had anywhere. And Dick Blick had the best deal on the NET on this product. It costs more than its competitors but it blows them all away in quality and reliability.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Long Rotation & Perfectly Balanced
I foolishly tried another brand of banding wheel to save money...what a mistake! Fortunately, I was able to return it.This Shampoo is hands down the best one to get. I shopped around and Blick had the best price and the shipping speed was amazing! I opted for free shipping and had it in 2 days.If you're in the market for a banding wheel just look at this as an investment because it's the last one you'll have to buy and you'll be glad you did!

This wheel places things at a great height and it's perfect for all of the banding and slip work that I do. It has a smooth, continuous motion which lasts a long time. Definitely a good buy.
These Shimpo banding wheels are great.
from San Francisco,Ca
These are very high quality banding wheels. Very sturdy and precise. Also very heavy but that's good. We are happy we had free shipping on these.
This will last longer than me...LOL

I've wanted one of these wheels for quite some time now but just couldn't see spending the amount I was seeing online. Thankfully I ran across your website and found that I didn't have to pay so much, so I now have one and like using it alot.
The best of its type
from Burlison, Tn
Arrived early(nice surprise). Very solid, very smooth. Obvious quality in finish and construction. I've wanted one of these for awhile and I am glad I did my homework and got the best for the best price. Blick does a good job in supplying art supplies at a good price, thank you.
the cadillac of banding wheels

Expensive but it won't break anytime soon. It is a sold construction for larger, heavier pieces. The weight also keeps the wheel in motion when adding surface decoration that goes around the entire piece. I started with a cheaper wheel but, for me, it didn't last or do the job I needed
from Durham, NC
The Shimpo banding wheel is exceptionally designed and incredibly smooth. I've been disappointed with the cheaper banding wheels on the market. I'm delighted! So glad I purchased this high-quality wheel that will surely pay for itself through improving my efficiency.
from Overland Park
Great banding wheel, can't believe it has free shipping. Grandkids use it to spin toys all over the place and no worries since it's so heavy it won't fall off the counter. Love painting my pottery with it.
Best of its kind
By Terraforma Studio

I make some relatively large, heavy ceramic pieces that can be very delicate and vulnerable during construction. I paid a lot to get a Shimpo banding wheel, comparitively, because in my experience it is far and away the best, most solid, reliable, smoothest rotating, and toughest heavy-duty banding wheel. Period.
