Vintage 1960 Leo McNeal wheel: A machinist in the airplane industry made these wheels for Wayne State U. in Detroit Mich. Several potters in Michigan, including John Glick, Julie, and I purchased wheels directly from McNeal. Julie's wheel was made a little smaller to fit her leg size. Her wheel has been sold.
Of historical interest: When Michael Cardew visited Wayne State in the mid 60's he threw a screw top bottle on the McNeal wheel . We still have the screw top bottle.
