If you like the feel of throwing on a round bat but want to save space on your ware carts and work shelves Plywood Bat with bat pin holes are perfect for you.
Plywood Bat with bat pin holes are flat round discs that attach to the pottery wheel head and are extremely useful tools in a ceramics. Pottery bats are typically fabricated with two holes that fit comfortably onto a pair of bat pins that are inserted into the potter’s wheel head. Older pottery wheel heads may not have holes for bat pins; however, these can be easily added with a drill. Once the bat is attached to the wheel head, the potter can work directly on the the bat, which is then lifted off the wheel head with the thrown pot and without disrupting their work.
Caring for your Bat System:
Do not wash: It’s the key to keeping your inserts from swelling. Let it all be dirty.
You can wipe your clay off when you’ve finished throwing, but the less water you’ve got on it the better.
Do not stack the insets: If possible, store them on their side.
If inserts swell: Let them completely dry out (either over several days or a couple of hours in a 95°C oven).
If this doesn’t fix their fit, then lightly sand the edges as needed.
