The Prodigy pottery wheel is the perfect model for schools. It is easy to clean because the wheel head comes off. Students can take the whole one-piece pan to the reclaimer for dumping and then to the sink for a final rinse. From the motor to the foot pedal, these things are built to handle all the abuse the classroom can dish out. Plus it’s all backed by the best 10-year parts and labor warranty in the business.
Packed with the wheel you will find the following items:
- Wheel Head
- Splash Pan
- Foot Pedal (Attached)
- Bat Pins
- Skutt Manual
New SMOOTH Foot Pedal Technology
Skutt tasked their engineers to find a watertight, more responsive, longer-lasting potentiometer and we think they hit a home run. Newly equipped with frictionless nylon bushings, this pedal feels like an extension of your foot.
All Skutt Motors are Continuous Duty Motors. You can tell by their size they're different from other wheel motors: they have way more torque for their horsepower rating than other wheels. The Prodigy has had up to 6-foot tall pots thrown on the 1/3 HP motor and it showed no signs of straining. Want even more torque? Upgrade to 1/2 or 1 HP models.
For years wheel companies have been trying to one-up each other on how much clay their wheel can center. The bottom line is, there's no scientific way to measure this. The skill of the potter and the plasticity of the clay will always vary. The only way to measure a wheel's power scientifically is with an instrument that can measure torque at the wheel head. Well, Skutt did that and their wheels have the most torque.
Better Control – SSX Controller
These controllers utilize an extra-large capacitor to store power and then feather it in when you want to change speed. This is critical when throwing large pieces at slow speeds to avoid sudden surges that will damage your pots.
Due to the fact that Skutt wheels have enough power, they turned off a feature found on most wheel controllers called IR Comp. IR Comp is a setting on the controller that acts like cruise control in your car. We all have experienced that cruise control can be a little jerky at times. Skutt motors don't need it, so they don't turn it on.
Easy and Convenient
Skutt has the only wheel head on the market that can be popped off with the flick of a wrist. On removable splash pan models, this allows Skutt to utilize a one-piece splash pan that won't leak and can be carried directly to the clay reclaimer in one piece without having to empty it and take it apart.
