- 1 x 200mm - 150mm adaptor (made in 6mm Premium MDF)

The diameter of the master batt is made-to-measure according to the size of your wheelhead. Please click here for guidance taking your wheelhead measurements. If you don't see your size listed simply enter your measurements in the "Bespoke" box and we will make you a custom system.
You can check the accuracy of your wheelhead measurement by measuring both the diameter and the circumference of your wheelhead in millimetres. If your measurements are correct, you will find that the Circumference divided by 3.142 is equal to the Diameter. If not, we would recommend that you repeat your measurements until you are satisfied that they are correct. They should match eachother within a millimetre.
Please note that our Over-the-Wheel Tile Batt Systems are specifically designed to be slightly bigger 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. It has been successfully tested for throwing up to 10kg of clay.
The minimum size wheel head required for this batt system is 300mm. We can however make you a smaller / adapted version and offer additional tiles. Please get in touch with us at email@example.com if you'd like any assistance.
Soak the Batt Rug in water. Place flat and smooth on the wheel. Then place the master batt on top, and use 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.
