A few days ago I lugged home a new (to me) Brent model 3 potters wheel as a present to my wife (who is the real potterer in the family). I found a great deal in the local paper and I couldn’t pass it up. I’ve been throwing on Brent ‘B’ for the past 10 years, but the extra weight of the ‘C’ along with the 1/2 hp motor is a welcome addition. Heavier is better! That said, I don’t really expect to be able to throw the 50 lbs of clay this thing can handle anytime soon .
