Nidec Shimpo RK-5TF is a popular table-top pottery wheel designed especially for home hobby – ideal for children and beginners. Despite the low motor power rating, its capacity is up to 10 kg of ceramic mass. The pottery wheel weighs 12 kg, is easy to carry, store and requires minimal maintenance.
RK-5TF belongs to the table-top wheels. It is the smallest model of Japanese Nidec Shimpo pottery wheels and is designed primarily for hobby. You can use it especially when you start with pottery and throwing on the pottery wheel. We recommend it to those who have no experience yet and it is their first contact with thrown pottery. It is a pottery wheel suitable for children and adults.
With its lightweight and compact design, the Nidec Shimpo RK-5TF is easy to carry and store. The cover of the pottery wheel is made out of hardened plastic, therefore its total weight is only 12 kg. Despite its small size and low power consumption (100 W), its capacity is up to 10 kg. Thanks to this it finds its use as a permanent accessory in a number of studios or classrooms, where it throws irregularly on the pottery wheel.
Simply remove the one-piece plastic pan for cleaning without the use of tools. The pottery wheel has a low noise level of around 55 dB, which corresponds to a TV at normal volume. The wheel is easy to operate, has long life, low noise, requires minimal maintenance and is easy to carry.
The pottery wheel is plugged into a normal household electrical socket (230 V), has a minimum power consumption (100 W) and is extremely energy efficient. The wheelhead is driven by a belt transmission and the speed is controlled by a stepless adjustable foot pedalfrom 0 up to 230 rpm. The wheelheads direction of rotation can be freely selected using the direction switch - you can set it clockwise or counterclockwise depending on whether you are right or left-handed, or as you are used to.
The wheelhead has a diameter of 178 mm and is made out of light aluminum alloy. On the wheelhead are mounted two screws for fixing the plastic bat on which it throws. You can remove this bat at any time to allow the product to dry aside. You can then continue creating on the second bat. Together with the pottery wheel you get two plastic bats in the package. Other spare bats for Nidec Shimpo RK-5TF are available upon request.
