The Lockerbie, like many of today's potters, was conceived in the 60's.
You will find the original, earth friendly, Lockerbie design
just as groovy today.

Lockerbie Kick Wheel Care Instructions

Basic Lubrication:


Keep your wheel turning for years to come by repeating the following procedures every 4 months for wheels kept outside, every 6 months for heavy (schools, public studios, production) usage wheels and yearly for wheels in normal service.

Top Bearing: Apply a multi-purpose grease a grease gun with a nipple fitting. Laguna Laguna recommends #70614, Lubrimatic or equivalent.

Bottom Bearing: Use a wrench to remove the access bolt just above the concrete flywheel. Insert one ounce of oil from the provided 2 ounce general lubricating oil bottle, which arrived with your wheel. When finished, turn the bolt until just snug. Be careful, DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN!! The bolt will strip if forced. An oil can with a hose-nozzle or squirt bottle is required to insert oil. Laguna recommends: Husky, Keystone, 3-in-One, or equivalent. The reservoir holds 1 oz. of oil for the kick wheel's bottom bearing. The cover keeps out water and dirt.
