NIDEC - SHIMPO
Shimpo/Nidec is know for crafting well made and very affordable pottery wheels. Their WHISPER models use a whisper-quiet direct-drive motor that can also double as a banding wheel when not powered on. The RK-Whisper is a great choice for those who need portability or have a small studio space. The VL-Lite is a great choice for beginning potters for teaching studios.
Many wheels are currently available by SPECIAL ORDER ONLY. We do try to keep some wheels on hand in our warehouse so please give us a call during normal business hours to do a stock check. Even though our site says these products are out of stock you can still order them in the configuration of your choice and we will contact you to take a deposit and place the order with the manufacturer for you.
