The Prodigy pottery wheel is the perfect model for schools. It is easy to clean because the wheel head comes off. Students can take the whole one-piece pan to the reclaimer for dumping and then to the sink for a final rinse. From the motor to the foot pedal, these things are built to handle all the abuse the classroom can dish out. Plus it’s all backed by the best 10 year parts AND LABOR warranty in the business.

New SMOOTH Foot Pedal Technology

We tasked our engineers to find a water tight, more responsive, longer lasting potentiometer and we think they hit a homerun. Newly equipped with frictionless nylon bushings, this pedal feels like an extension of your foot. Listen to Skutt Engineer Michael Walter talk about the science behind it.

Most Powerful

All Skutt Motors are Continuous Duty Motors. You can tell by their size they are different than other wheel motors…that is because they are. They are held to a higher standard and therefor have way more torque for their Horse Power rating than other wheels. We asked Herrick Smith to throw a 6 foot pot on our 1/3 HP motor and it showed no signs of straining. Want even more torque? Upgrade to our ½ or 1 HP models.

For years wheel companies have been trying to one up each other on “how much clay their wheel can center. The bottom line is, there is no scientific way to measure this. The skill of the potter and the plasticity of the clay will always vary. The only way to measure a wheels power scientifically is with an instrument that can measure torque at the wheel head. Well we did and Skutt wheels have the most torque.

Better Control – SSX Controller

These controllers utilize an extra-large capacitor to store power and then feather it in when you want to change speed. This is critical when throwing large pieces at slow speeds to avoid sudden surges that will damage your pots.

Due to the fact that our wheels have enough power, we turn off a feature found on most wheel controllers called IR Comp. IR Comp is a setting on the controller  that acts like cruise control in your car. We all have experienced that cruise control  can be a little jerky at times. Our motors don’t need it, so we do not turn it on.

Easy And Convenient

We have the only wheel head on the market that can be popped off with the flick of a wrist. On our removeable splash pan models this allows us to utilize a one-piece splash pan that won’t leak and can be carried directly to the clay reclaimer in one piece without having to empty it and take it apart.

10 Year Warranty

Take one look at our wheels and it is quite clear that they are built to last. From the heavy-duty casted metal frame and foot pedal to the superior electronics we build them with the hopes that you will use this wheel for the rest of your life and we will be proud to support it with the best customer and technical support in the industry.
