Shimpo VL – Whisper $1168.00

The RK-Whisper represents the next generation of potter’s wheels. Responsive, high torque at all speeds, powerful and quiet. Not just quiet, but QUIET! This wheel is by far the quietest on the market; you can actually throw and hear yourself think at the same time…
The exterior of the RK-Whisper resembles the RK-10, but that’s where the similarities end! This new 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 14” wheelhead and two-piece splashpan are included as standard features.

The superior technology of Shimpo’s RK-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
