Suitable for beginners and children

RK-5T 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.

Compact and easy to store

With its lightweight and compact design, the Nidec Shimpo RK-5T 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.

Noise and cleaning

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.

Speed control

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 hand lever from 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. Speed control of pottery wheel Nidec Shimpo RK 5T

Aluminium wheelhead with bat 

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-5T are available upon request.

Kruh nám pořídili ve škole do keramického kroužku.
Děti jsou z práce na kruhu nadšeny!!!
Menší problém je ruční ovládání při redukci otáček.Děti mají ruce od hlíny,páčka jim klouže,protože je upatlaná.Podle potřeby jim otáčky regulujeme,protože většina z nich pracuje pod dohledem.Lepší by bylo ovládání nožním pedálem.
Jinak jsme s kruhem spokojeni,tichý chod a je skladný.

S kruhem jsme spokojený. Tichý chod, snadná manipulace a lehký na přenos. Vhodný nejen pro práci dětí, ale i dospělých.

S kruhem - s kruhy jsme velmi spokojení - je tichý, pro děti příznivý, dospělí jej upřednostní před velkým kruhem. Do dílny pro děti a dospělé skvělý.
