Find Potter's Wheels Locally - New & UsedYou can sometimes find a good potter's wheel locally.
- Check your newspaper's classified section under arts and crafts and miscellaneous items for sale.
- Check local artist supply stores (check your local yellow pages under "Artist Supplies"); they often have a community bulletin board, even if they don't carry potter's wheels.
- If you are lucky enough to live near a larger retail ceramic supplier (check your local yellow pages under "Pottery Supplies"), you may save money on the shipping charges if you buy from them.
Craigslist - Used
Craigslist.org lists all sorts of things. Start by choosing your region or state. Craigslist may then ask you to narrow down to areas within that region. Once you have your locality pinpointed, look for the "For Sale" list and click on "Arts and Crafts."
This list will almost certainly be quite extensive. At the top of the page, type "potter wheel" in the search text box and click the Search button. (By using "potter wheel," you'll get both "potter's wheel" and "pottery wheel" listings.) Again, these will almost always be used wheels.
