consisting of two small bolts that are raised or lowered using the supplied Allen Key.


This enables a bat to be securely and simply mounted to the wheel head.

Master bat for the plywood mini bat

Consists of an 254mm diameter plastic Master bat with a central cut-out to place and centre a 152 mm mini bat.

The master bat is held on the wheel head by the bat retaining pins.
The 152mm (6") plywood mini bat is locked in to place in the master bat through a lug that fits in to a recess in the master bat.
Ideal when making a quantity of smaller items as the bats take up less room on the drying shelf.
When the piece is thrown remove the plywood mini bat and insert another in to the master bat for the next throw.
