The Shimpo RK-Whisper represents the next generation of potter’s wheels. Responsive, high torque at all speeds, powerful and quiet. Not just quiet, but QUIET! This wheel is by far the quietest on the market; you can actually throw and hear yourself think at the same time...

The exterior of the Shimpo RK-Whisper resembles the RK-10, but that’s where the similarities end! This new wheel features a brushless DC motor and direct drive (no belt) system. The motor is electronically controlled and operated by a fixed foot pedal and hand lever. It’s reversible, and the steel body is durable under all conditions. A 12 wheelhead and two-piece splashpan are included as standard features.

NOTE: Please note that many customers outside of the United States will require an upgrade from 120-volt to 220-volt operation. Click here to add that upgrade.
