Melbourne made, using tried and true Weathertex that many potters are familiar with.

*Bat pins are only included with the standard pin option. Venco and Shimpo options assumes your wheel have pins already, and over the wheel doesn't requie pins.

The Starter Kit includes everything needed to increase productivity, save space, and avoid warping pots when removing freshly thrown work off the wheel head.

Our bat system is built using 9.5mm thick Weathetrex boards designed as architectural exterior cladding, highly durable, and water-resistant. It will last a long time without warping.

Designed to be used with bat pins in conjunction with a bat mate for best fit with zero movements even while centering harder clay.

Over the wheel & pin version available depending on your preference. More detailed comparison below in the FAQ.

Shimpo & Venco pin options are for those who had their pins installed from the supplier to their arrangements. If you are planning to install your own pin, choose the "Standard" option no matter what brand of wheel you have.

Our bat system can be fully customise to your need, pins arrangement, and even custom size inserts. Please get in touch via our Contact page with any request or enquiries.

All bat systems are made to order with a lead time of 7-10 days.
