The Award winning Discus Craftsman Potter’s Wheel
The “secret” potters wheel – this hidden gem of a wheel was developed in the UK to a patented design by a world leading Engineer, ex Rolls Royce.
Built to the very highest technical specifications and quality in Hampshire with all the main parts including the outstanding electric motor, wheel head and moulded components.
Discus, probably the most powerful, compact and elegant portable table top electric potter’s wheel in the world, with no compromise on safe operation.
This rugged, wheel delivers constant torque so critical for clay working and often lacking in comparable products. This portable wheel is light and easy to move and use whilst probably having more power than you will need.
The wheel speed is controlled by a foot pedal or, the optional hand controller.
Discus Potters’ Wheels are a joy to use and ideal for beginners and hobbyists, classrooms, adult education, special needs, professionals and small production runs and will provide many years of reliable service.
"I had been thinking about buying another wheel for well over a year. Looked at all the usual pottery sales places, even one very local to where I live. I kept returning to look at the Discus wheel and the package that included all that was needed to get started. I usually make with a stoneware clay, but also wanted to throw in porcelain. The price of the package is really very good, and I decided that this was the wheel to buy. The fact that it is designed and made in the UK was attractive as that is always a preference. The wheel arrived on the day that was stated. It was packed extremely well and was easy to assemble. The stool supplied is comfortable but I use it elsewhere because I like to sit quite high for all my work whether sewing, potting, computing, so changed the stool to one that is adjustable. The wheel is very quiet when throwing, so much so I have to remember to turn it off at the wall. The bat system is great. The system I use on the other wheel is tiles. The bats are lightweight and easy to fit on the wheel head. I ordered some more bats and again the delivery was swift and they were well packed. I would totally recommend that anyone looking to buy a wheel to consider the Discus system. Any replacement parts are readily available on the website, and there is a real, helpful person at the end of the phone, which is always a bonus."
"Quiet, powerful, excellent speed control, easy to use and light enough to take to demonstrations. For me a bonus is being able to set the foot control to a constant speed and throwing whilst standing up."
"I have used various wheels over the years and this one is ‘just what it says on the can’"
"Excellent – Very pleased. Came in a few days and has proven an ideal workhorse."
"Lovely design and so portable but at the same time powerful for making and demonstrating plates and bowls. I also bought the bowls which I use sometimes and are simple to fit to the wheel"
"I bought this wheel to go to shows where I give demonstrations and it has worked out to be just the job. Thanks"
