Easy to clean after use, just disconnect the bowl from the control cable and move to a sink where waste water can be tipped out and the bowl wiped clean.
The independent intelligent electronic controller combined with the technically advanced UK made 24volts DC motor in the wheel provides the means for the Discus potter’s wheel to safely centre up to 16kgs (35lbs), higher than its size might suggest.
