A Working Leach treadle Wheel!

I set up the wheel temporarily to make sure it worked correctly and smoothly prior to breaking it down for finishing. All I can say is success!
It needed some minor adjustments, but works exactly as I had hoped. Here I cranked it up, jumped off and filmed a short video of the wheel in action.

  1. Hi Chris, my name is Enrico Tramacere i'm a beginner potter from south Italy. I'd like to build a steel leach wheel like you did. Your wheel is really nice!!! Can you send me the measurements of your wheel just to have an idea on how to build it? Can I ask how much did it costs? Thank you very much!!! My email is: or Enrico Tramacere on facebook. Cheers
