This is pretty much self explainatory.  I have been looking for a long time
and cannot find a good price.  I would like to get started into this hobby
very soon.  Any info would be very much appreciated.  Please reply if any
info is found.

Thank You for any help!!!

chances are you won't find one at a "good price". Used wheels command a fair
amount of their original purchase price. The best route if you are wanting to
stay below $200 is to build a kick wheel. There are plans in lots of books at
your library-also community centers and universities may have plans they have
used. I gave up looking for a used one and dropped the bucks. I figure that if I
ever give up pottery (which I doubt) I can resell it fairly easily. If you
haven't been to classes at a community center or school you might try that first
to get the basics and to try out different types of wheels. The feel, size and
torque all vary considerably. I wish, for example, that I had gotten a wheel
with adjustable height because I am not a very big person and the height is a
bit much on my Brent. Kickwheels you build yourself can be more tailored (within
reason) to your specs.
