Brent Wheels

Brent wheels have set the standard for quality since 1969. During that time, they have earned a reputation for dependability that is unsurpassed by other brands. Each wheel is built with materials, components and workmanship designed to take the punishment of classroom and studio use over the long haul. Models range from the tabletop ie-t to the heavy-duty CXC with its 1 1/2 hp motor that can center over 100 lbs. of clay. Amaco® and Brent® potter's wheels accomodate the needs of the potter and small or large ceramic art departments. A wide range of quality accessories, including handextruders, bats, and bat mobile carts are also available.
