Over-the-Wheel Standard Tile Batt System
This Over-the-Wheel Style Standard Batt System is manufactured from our Premium 15mm MDF. The unique design is especially for pottery wheels with NO batt pins. It includes the following items:-
1 x Master Batt (made to fit your wheel)
1 x Stay-Put Batt Rug (Made from a synthetic non animal Product)
5 x 150mm Tile inserts (made in 6mm Premium MDF)
The diameter of the master batt is made-to-measure, to fit your particular wheelhead. Please click here for a quick guide to measuring your wheelhead. If you don't see your wheelhead size listed on our website, just enter your own measurements in the "Bespoke" box.
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.
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 this system:
Please do not leave your 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 & rug from your 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 cause damage.
