    Wheel Whisper1/2 HP Reversible w/splash

    RK-Whisper

    The RK-Whisper is the latest in Shimpo's line of superior products, and represents the next generation of potter's wheels. Responsive, high torque at all speeds, powerful and QUIET… This wheel is undoubtedly the quietest on the market.

    The exterior of the "Whisper" resembles the RK-10 but that's where the similarities end! The "Whisper" features a ½ hp, brushless DC motor and direct drive (no belt) system. The motor is electronically controlled and operated by a fixed foot pedal with hand lever, and the "Whisper" maintains desired speed under all load conditions. The steel body is extremely durable, and a 12" wheelhead and two-piece splashpan are included as standard features. It is reversible and can center up to 100lbs.

    It's compact design saves space, and the "Whisper" comes with a five-year warranty. Three words describe this wheel: smooth, quiet, and powerful.

    Bat Brown 12" Diameter

    WonderBats
    Perform similar to plaster, no need to wire off
    1/2" thick material, resists warping and is very durable
    Drilled for standard 3/8" diameter pins on 10" centers
    What are WonderBats made of?

    WonderBats are made with a treated wood composite panel product that was developed for applications in exterior and high moisture interior environments. It is manufactured from wood chips and phenolic resins, which makes it resistant to moisture. It has a uniform density and thickness compared to wood, which means there are more consistent physical properties throughout the board making it resistant to warping. It is environmentally friendly; no old growth timber is used to make it. Instead, byproducts from sawmill operations and forest thinnings are converted into the wood chips which are used to create the material that WonderBats are made. Also, because this material is made using phenolic resins it has essentially no formaldehyde emissions.

    Do you need to wire off when using WonderBats?

    No. The material they made of is porous and performs similar to plaster. When the clay reaches the leather-hard stage it will release from the WonderBat.

    Do WonderBats need to be waterproofed?

    No. If fact we strongly recommend against it. The material they are made out of is extremely water resistant but is also porous which it why they perform similar to plaster. If they are sealed or waterproofed it can greatly reduce or eliminate their ability to release when the clay becomes leather-hard.
