Model C Potter's Wheel 22608J.... List
|The Brent Model C Potter's wheel is
unequivocally the most popular potter's wheel, and for good reason.
The Brent C has a tried and true, heavy duty DC motor and power delivery
systems that handles much more than 75 pounds of clay (Brent conservatively
rates its motors and its capacities which means this wheel can throw much
more). It's modular control allows
wheel reversal at the flick of a switch. The aluminum wheel head rides
on industrial strength double row ball bearings for long, quiet, trouble
free service life. And of course don't forget the best splash pan in
the industry - deep, leak free, spatter proof, and easy to remove and clean!

Wheel Comparison/Reviews to Brent C
|Brent Model C
- (5 out of 5
stars) - Traditional 3 legged design with extremely solid steel frame construction and
ample high grade plastic covered drip surfaces. Industry leading splash pan
simply will not leak (many other brands need to follow Brent's lead here). Modular control allows for reversal at the flip
of a switch. V-belt drive with automatic tensioner eliminates
belt play. 14 " cast aluminum wheel head rides on double row
industrial ball bearing sets. This means that the Brent wheel had will
stay true. Some wheels use lesser grade bearing systems and the wheel
heads start to wobble with age, this can make centering and throwing a real
chore. Brent has invested in industrial grade components in the areas
that matter the most. The C has the largest motor in its class, a 3/4 HP heavy duty DC motor and control.
It has a solid, quiet, and reliable wheel with a long heritage of quality
and performance. Brent also has longest and most comprehensive factory
warranty in the industry; a full 5 years from Brent. And Brent has the
most extensive and experienced dealer network through North America, in the
unlikely event your wheel would need service. This wheel is the
benchmark that others try to copy, but none, to be quite frank, have come
Whisper - (3 out of 5 stars) - Similar form factor to Brent C, though
slightly shorter. Wheel head is the same 14" as on Brent C and is
also aluminum. The VL Whisper uses a new direct drive DC motor to
deliver RPM's to the wheel head. The Brent C, by contrast, uses a
proven belt driven DC motor. Both the Brent and the Shimpo have speed
reversing switches and are very quiet. Both have cast aluminum pedals.
Pacifica GT400 -
(3 out of 5 stars)
- Similar form factor as Brent C. Very smooth aluminum pedal.
The GT400 has a 1/2 HP belt driven motor and a steel frame with plastic
table cover and drip edge (similar to Brent C though not the same quality of
materials). The wheel head is 13" aluminum. This is 1" smaller
than most wheel heads in this category. It uses a belt and pulley
drive system of different construction than the Brent C.
Why Choose the Brent C
Here is a handy checklist for you to use
when comparing wheels.
True Industrial grade, large frame motor. Compare the physical size of Brent
motors to those of other manufacturer's claiming to have more horsepower.
Remember...Motor Size = Torque! Anyone can play games with specs.
It's what is "under the hood" that matters. Go ahead, crawl under the
wheels to take a look!
Heavy gage, Powder Coated steel under plastic deck.
grade, resilient, and easy to clean plastic drip table and splash pan.
Reversible with the simple flip of
a switch! No messing around with clumsy, unreliable reversing plugs
that get clogged with clay.
Strongest Warranty in Industry - A full 5 Years from the industry's oldest
pottery wheel manufacturer!
Belt Tensioner. This is not so easy to see. All Brent's have
an integrated belt tensioner to keep proper force on the drive belt and pulley
at all times.
Metal Pulleys. Go for wheels with metal drive pulleys, not plastic.
Heavy Duty, Rust Free, cast aluminum foot pedal. Not painted metal
(with a piece of sandpaper glued to it) that rusts when scratched.
Remember, pedals are on the floor and the do get wet. Go for
aluminum (it's silver in appearance as opposed to brown) for durability.
High grade aluminum wheel head. Not plastic. Again,
aluminum wheel heads are silver in appearance and plastic wheel heads are brown.
Plastic heads can wear when tooling.
Metal bearing set and carriers. Watch out for plastic
carriers in many other brands as they are more likely to wobble over time.
These are the important things you cannot see on the surface! Look under
the wheel head to see what hold the spindle to the frame.
Most Extensive Nationwide Dealer and Service Network.
