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)
- Your choice of either 5 x 150mm Tile Inserts (made from 6mm Premium MDF),
OR 5 x 200mm Tile inserts (made from 6mm Premium MDF).
If you have a wheelhead diameter of 300mm or greater then you may select 200mm sized tile inserts. If you have a wheelhead diameter of less than 300mm, the maximum size tile insert you can choose is 150mm.
The diameter of the master batt is made-to-measure, to fit your particular wheelhead. Always measure your wheel before ordering. Please click here for our video 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. We recommend that you always measure your own wheel as manufacturer's booklets can be inaccurate.
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.

I received my over the wheel batt system yesterday and have been using it all day today - it is so good. I needed a bespoke size so added my measurements as requested when ordering - I have to say I was dubious about this - but it fits perfectly. It's really smooth on the hands and stays in place with no play or movement. I have a very small home pottery so the inserts are great as they take up less room on my shelves when drying pottery that I haven't lifted off the batt.

My entire experience with Nicky and Stuart was super positive. Super quick to reply and respond, more than totally amenable throughout. Treated me as a priority, even thought i was just buying one item. Could not recommend highly enough. Also the product is wonderful. Full marks , and thank you again

Amazing service and quality batt system
I would highly recommend Hartley & Noble!
From the first phone call to receiving my custom made batt system the customer service has been fantastic.
I wanted a batt system for my new whisper wheel that could be interchangeable with my existing batts.
After an initial phone call I sent one of my old Batts. The new batts were made to size.
I received them today and have already thrown on the new batts with my old batt system. . . They work perfectly!
Thankyou Hartley and Noble
