Where to get stuff.
There are many links on the site to suppliers - BUT only those with websites.
So any useful suppliers (UK based only) that don't have a website can be included here.

Robin @ Top Pot [Feb21, 2017 - 9:28 AM]: Hi Aimee, Ive never used shoutbox haha to reply. Probably best to open a thread in where to get stuff . Robin
Aimee [Feb13, 2017 - 3:37 PM]: i have never used a forum before so not how this works. I have bought a second hand Potters wheel but unfortunately it didn't like the journey to my house and has stopped working. I am looking for some advice about repairing it. Thanks Aimee
