Measuring your wheel is simple. It must be measured from one edge to the other across the DIAMETER of the wheel, through the centre point, as per the illustration.
Please use the easy to install and remove guide below to help you fit your BAT Retainer and BAT to your wheel.
- Your wheel has been manufactured to engineering tolerances of two thousands of an inch.
- The retainer ring has been produced to the same tolerances and is a tight fit.
- Please take care when handling to avoid splinters.
I am a full time potter and have been using the traditional clay pad method to attach bats to my wheelhead that doesnt have bat pins. This was a time consuming and wasteful process that was a bit hit and miss. I did consider drilling my wheelhead and inserting bat pins but this was a complicated and difficult thing to do.
Hence when I saw your batretainer I thought I would give it a try and am pleased to say its brilliant. The retainer fits tightly to the wheelhead and the bats drop in exactly. Perfectly centre every time. Lifting the bats out is easy by using the cut out notches so I can throw large pots and bowls without distortion when I take them off the wheel.
This is a great solution to an age old problem and I am very happy to recommend this device to any potter who uses bats.
The bats themselves are excellent quality and I have recently bought more.
Brilliant thank you.
