The Nidec company (parent of Shimpo) makes large equipment, they do not need to make products for potters, but they do it as a labour of love and cultural dedication to the craft of pottery that is so important in Japan. And it shows. The quality of these products is amazing and every potter knows it. It is normal, for example, that a Shimpo wheel appreciates in value over time, people who bought one 10 or 20 years ago can get more than they paid for it today!Includes roller, wagon wheel handle, canvas set, 30x50 inch heavy gauge table. Rolling thickness: 0 to 3 inches. 210 lbs.
