A Mini version of our Over-the-Wheel Russian Doll Batt System. It's a perfect two-in-one size system for smaller pottery wheelheads. Manufactured from our Premium 15mm MDF. It's unique design is made especially to fit smaller pottery wheels with NO batt pins. Minimum size wheelhead required for this product is 225mm diameter.
The Mini Over-the-Wheel Russian Doll System includes the following items:
- 1 x Master Batt
- 1 x Stay-Put Batt Rug (Made from a synthetic non-animal product)
- 1 x 150mm - 100mm adaptor (made in 6mm Premium MDF)
- 11 x 100mm Tile inserts (made in 6mm Premium MDF)
- 11 x 150mm Tile inserts (made in 6mm Premium MDF)
The diameter of the master batt is made-to-measure according to the size of your wheelhead. Always measure your own wheel before ordering, do not use the manufacturers booklet alone. Please click here for our video guide to measuring your wheelhead. If you don't see your size listed simply enter your own measurement in the "Bespoke" box and we'll make you something custom-fit!
When you receive your Over-the-Wheel Tile Batt System you will find that it is specifically designed to be slightly larger than your wheelhead measurement. This is essential in order for the master batt to go on and off easily. It is quite normal to have a millimetre or so of movement when you put your master batt on the wheel. When the wheel starts spinning, and the wet batt rug is in place, there will be no excess movement. This is part of the unique design.
Soak the Batt Rug in water. Place flat and smooth on the wheel. Then place the master batt on top, and insert the tile inserts as required. Throw!

How to look after me:
Do not leave batts soaking in water. Wood is a natural Product and this could cause swelling or warping.
To clean just wipe with a damp sponge to remove any clay.
Remove the batts and rug from the wheel when not in use.
Do not stack these batts together, dry & store vertically..
Do not use metal scourers or screwdrivers on these batts as this can result in damage.
