St.Ives Pottery plan of Leach wheel - looks authentic !

  1. Simon - when you came over here to Barryville, did you get rid of your leach wheels? If so, do you plan on building another one?

    I built a regular kickwheel, but bought an electric wheel after using the kickwheel a little while. Too hard on the leg. But the Leach wheel seems easier since you're not really kicking. I like the idea of being free from electricity, using a kickwheel and a gas kiln, since having the electric wheel running all day can boost up the electric bill and I can't imagine how much it would cost to fire up a big electric kiln to cone 10 all the time.
