AMACO Now Has Brent Wheel Replacement Parts Program On-Line

INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwire - September 29, 2009) - It just became a whole lot easier to find wheel replacement parts for those Brent pottery wheels from the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s that just won't stop spinning. AMACO now has an on-line shopping program that expedites identifying needed replacement parts to keep your wheel running as painless and streamlined as possible. With their new web program you can visually identify your control box, and all the other necessary parts are then easy to find.

Brent has a strong commitment to providing replacement parts or components for even 30-year old throwing wheels. Brent's wheels have the longest life of any studio or school wheel, and the replacement parts can restore them to their original peak performance. Equipment that runs well is the bread and butter for many of their customers who can't afford for a wheel to be down for too long and AMACO realizes this. All you have to do is take a look at your wheel and match the control box that most closely resembles yours to the ones pictured on the site. Once you have done that, click on the picture of your model wheel. The list of parts that are designated for the correct configuration of your specific wheel will drop down for placing into a shopping cart. You can click and buy right there, or use the part number listed to order from your local supplier.

If you find that a repair on one of your potter's wheels is necessary instead, AMACO's website will also help you find the authorized Brent dealer nearest you. Brent tries very hard to get the dealers exactly what the customer's need and to also give them the technical information they require. Fixing an old control box can be difficult because newer alternative parts may not fit with an older style box, or they may be damaged in retrofitting. AMACO recommends that certified Brent dealers repair single component parts. In many cases, it may be easier and more cost effective to replace the full component. Those full components are available at AMACO. With this quick and easy solution, you no longer have an excuse to keep your potter's wheel out of commission!
