Apologies if this is the wrong place.  I am looking for replacement sides for my Talisman pottery wheel.  Would any of you kind potters in New Zealand have any suggestions?  I have spoken to the new company owners who have no ideas.  Many thanks.

I know that there is a place in Auckland that takes old wheels and refurbishes them or uses them for parts. No idea of the name of the place though. Nathan Homestead in Manurewa has used them many times to take old wheels.

Thank you for taking the time to reply. A bit far for me as I am in Queensland. Hoping to be able to get just the sides and replace myself.

Gosh you should ask in pottery groups in Queensland to see if anyone can help there.
This is a New Zealand based group.
Talisman wheels were made her in NZ.

Dear Ev,

Thanks for your reply. I doubt anyone here knows, I was hoping that some clever person in NZ would have an idea because there must have been many more of them. I will try posting in Au but suspect I will not have any luck. I have two options - sell as is, or take it to pieces and manufacture my own, which could be a little fraught. The motor and wheel are ok.

Could you post photos please Julia?
Or send them to the site on newzealandpottery@gmail.com and I will post them for you.
Do the sides hold the splash pan?

Yes, it does go. It has been sitting on a concrete floor which I suspect let moisture seep into the parts which touch.

There must be someone around who has plans or makes the side panels, surely.

Hi,

I have had the same problem with mine. Maybe it’s a Queensland problem Wink

A kind friend made a new frame for me back in the 90’s.

I’ve now acquired another one with a frame that is in such poor condition that the existing frame cannot be used as a template to make a new one.

I am looking for the template. Is it possible to get a copy of it?

Thanks
