Build Your Own Kiln and Potter's Wheel

I am looking for several ideas. I would like plans to build my own potters wheel, either kick or electric. I would also like to build my own kiln. And finally, I would like a recipe for homemade potters clay and glazes. Connie from Oklahoma

Hello, I have a book that has directions for making a potter's wheel and a electric Kiln. This book is out of print as it was first printed in the 70's I would be willing to scan the pages and send the on to you in a zipped file if you will email me at Frickner (at) aol (dot) com . Hope this helps you.`

Due to the volume of requests I am getting for the kiln and potter's wheel plans I am resorting to telling everyone the name of the book which is Building Craft equiment An illustrated Manual By A. Jay and Carol W. Abrams. I will still send out as many copies of the plans as I can but I have to copy them on a copy machine and I will need snail mail addresses to send them too.

I'm looking for plans for a potter's wheel, too. I just ran across this site. To actually build this, I'd need lots of help from friends who know more about mechanical stuff than I do ... and the directions could be more robust, but it's a start.

For those of you who are looking to build your own pottery wheel, I have found a good basic template at http://www.motherearthnews.com . Put "Pottery Wheel" in the search box and their article "Build Your Own Potter's Kick Wheel" link will come up.

O yes, please i like to know the steps to follow when building an electric potter's wheel. The parts of an electric potters wheel and their indivudual function. Also to know what kind of motor and what load is good for the carriage of the motor, and to finally know the types of electric potters wheel.

Dear friends, I have just made a gas pottery kiln at 100 * 100 * 80. It's internal temperature doesn't rise higher than 700 C. In addition, the temperature of the kiln doesn't emit anywhere. Any ideas or suggestions to solve the problem will be appreciated! Regards

I looked in the Buute county library website and found a book called "Building Pottery Equipment". It was made in 1975 but I would check your library and see if they have it. I'm going to pick mine up in about an hour. If the instructions look good, I'll tell you all and if you want, I can send you them.

Hi all. I used randy smith's plans...and needless to say, it was a challenge. My question is...were the heck do I find a throw head? is a "banding wheel" the same thing? Any ideas?

Also, with these plans, if anyone else has used them, how did it go with the flywheel? Did you use the diamond plate steel or pour your own from cement? Thanks.
