This trimming bearing is a great tool for any wheel-throwers! It's designed to be used during the trimming/turning stage. It allows you to apply firm pressure downwards to secure the piece to the wheel without the fear of collapsing any thin-walled base as the wide disc helps disperses downward pressure.
Unlike trimming with a jar lid, or a one-piece trimming spinner where you can feel the friction between your fingers and the spinning tool, the bearing fitted on the inside makes each spin super smooth. This means you could keep a firm grip on the top portion of the tool without feeling the spinning bottom disc.
You could use this tool in conjunction with a sticky chamois pad, or by securing the pot down with the wet-rim method for a very fast workflow.
