State Surplus wheel
I had been taking pottery classes for a couple of years on the LSU campus when my father-in-law surprised me with an old Lockerbie electric kickwheel that he had picked up at a state surplus property auction for $35. I have been throwing on it for years, and I love the flexibility of using it in either 'mode'. When I trim or throw small items, I seldom bother with the motor, but when I need 'help' centering clay for larger items, or keeping the wheel moving for a long pull, then I use the motor gratefully.
