VL-Whisper Potters Wheel



VL-Whisper Potters Wheel


  • 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. The VL-Whisper pottery wheel uses a direct drive motor. The Direct Drive motor is a brushless, beltless motor that operates on a magnet system and is electronically controlled. As a result, the motor is EXTREMELY quiet! 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!
