I bought a Frema from Pottery Supply House in Ontario this fall and had it
shipped to me here in Nfld.
It is their 3/4 horsepower reversible that sells for about $995.00 CDN. I
love it. Have had no problems with it. Apparently it is the one that they
sell to a lot of art teachers in schools. So, they probably take a lot of
misuse by young students.
If forget how much clay it will centre, up to 50 lbs I think. That really
wasn't an issue for me as I have no plans in the near future to work with
that amount of clay on the wheel. I am just getting my own studio put
together. I think it's a good little starter wheel.
Here is the link for the wheel,
see it has been reduced to $850.00 CDN ***SIGH***.Hope this helps!
