person who has a pacemaker. Serious
injury or death could occur. Consult a physician before using. ***

The superior technology of SHIMPO's VL-Whisper potter's wheel and the popular features of SHIMPO's Velocity V75 potter's wheel have been combined to create the second model in SHIMPO's Whisper series potter's wheels: the VL-Whisper.

Responsive, high torque at all speeds, powerful and we can now say the quietest wheel in the potter's wheel market. It's a quiet that must be heard to be believed!

Shimpo RK Whisper Wheel

Shimpo RK Whisper electric potters wheel***This product may be harmful to a person who has a pacemaker. Serious injury or death could occur. Consult a physician before using.***

The RK-Whisper wheel is responsive, high torque at all speeds, powerful and very quiet. The exterior of the RK-Whisper resembles the RK-10, but that’s where the similarities end! This wheel features a brushless DC motor and direct drive (no belt) system. The motor is electronically controlled and operated by a fixed foot pedal and hand lever. It’s reversible, and the steel body is durable under all conditions. A 12” wheel-head & two-piece splash pan included as standard feature plus a 5 year warranty!
