hank murrow answered this question the other day.
look it up, along with this answer.
i use a plasti/batt on my wheel head.
shinny side up.
add water with a sponge and take away most of it.
dampen the rim of your pot.
turn the pot over onto the batt.
wiggle it around.
then turn on the wheel, tap the pot into center.
(that is a topic for an in person demo.)
or, get it really close with the wiggle.
tap the top of the pot...firm.
a bit of air will come out of the pot, and it is attached
with slight vacuum.
trim the pot.
it sounds simple...but it takes awhile to catch on.
real vertical pots are harder to get to stick than
wide plate like pots.
i don't know...done it so long, it always works.

Quit saying that. You know full well that I ran an experiment with
some pots and cut air holes in the side of a pot or two before turning
over and sticking to the wheel head. They adheared quite well even
with the holes preventing any possible suction from forming as you
You're just messing with us, aren't you?
Yes, I have too much time on my hands,
