Trimming Spinner

DESCRIPTION: 
  Trimming Spinner goes on the bottom of a pot or mug while trimming. A finger of        the potters left hand rests in the concave center allowing the potter to stabilize the      trimming hand while trimming.  The wider footprint disperses downward pressure        to help prevent a thin-walled piece from collapsing. Thin, foam rubber backing            grips the piece. There are no moving parts.  A weighted string or fishing line can be      looped through the center hole and pulled/hung to mark lines down the side of a        piece, in lieu of a laser. 

USES:
    • Aids in trimming
    • Works well with our StickyBat and StickyPads
    • Division marks for quick reference for markings

BENEFITS:
    • Provides wider area to disperses downward pressure
    • Helps prevent a thin-walled piece from collapsing
    • Allows trimming hand to be stabilized on other hand
    • Convenient marks for 1/2 to 1/9th divisions   etc
    • Rubber grip works better than a bottle cap
