How To Get Rid of a Wobble
This problem has vexed me for years. I've tried many, many fixes. The other day, it occurred to me
that the wobble is created while the pot is in rotation. From that idea came the answer.
Spin the pot, making a mark with your fingernail on the side that's leaning towards you. Turn it
opposite of you. Put a vise grip on the wheel head to keep it stationary with your knee. Then pull
the pot with both hands towards you, down and to the left. This works really well so don't over do
it. If you do, turn the pot the other way and correct. Jim Whalen, Paradox Pottery
