We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock.
- EASY TO USE: Bleecker Station's Bat System is easy to use - simply lift inner bats from the insert tab in the outer bat using your fingers or a flat potter’s tool. The outer bat has holes drilled through and is also easy and to slip onto and off your pottery wheel pins. Fits standard wheel heads with pin holes spaced 10” apart on center.
- SAVE SPACE: Save precious space in your ceramics studio by drying your pots on small square inserts instead of regular round bats, which can take up a foot of space or more on your shelves.
- MORE ENJOYABLE: Masonite absorbs water allowing your pot to release itself as it dries, which is safer than cutting it off the wheel head with a wire and risk deforming or dropping it or leaving your fingerprints on the clay. Make throwing more enjoyable by eliminating the wiring off step altogether!
- SAFE: Insert tab is wide enough to prevent fingers from getting caught while throwing on the wheel.
- DURABLE: The inserts are made out of Masonite and the outer bat is made out of a water resistant, durable exterior-grade wood material. This bat system is designed to accommodate swelling from exposure to water, so unlike other bat systems the inserts should still fit into your adapter use after use. MADE IN THE USA.

This Bat System - One 12” Round Outer Bat Adapter & Six Rounded Square 7” Inserts allow for the throwing pots with a base 7” or smaller. Fits standard wheel heads with bat pin holes spaced 10" apart (measured from the centers). Each insert can be easily lifted from the insert tab in the outer bat. The outer bats are also easy to slide on and off wheel head bat pins.
The outer bat is made out of an exterior-grade wood material, and is very strong and warp- and water-resistant, but it can be damaged with long-term exposure to water. To protect your bat system, do not leave outer bat or inserts sitting in water, and gently clean and dry outer bat and inserts on their sides.
Additional inserts can be ordered separately from Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/Inserts-Satin-Additional-Adapter-Potters/dp/B0764MBG57/.

Cons: the actual bat holder is starting to warp. the worst part is that it is bowing in a way that its basically rocking on the wheel making it really tough to do anything (center, throw, lift, etc). I recommend that the manufacture make it so that both sides can accept an insert so that if one side bows you can flip it around and hopefully flatten in out again while you keep using it on the wheel. The bat itself is very thick and can easily put another insert slot on the other side perhaps even a circular insert v. a square one.
Con: inserts aren't as snug as id like them to be, this causes the inserts to shift slightly which at a fast speed can throw off your center. Temporary fixes are filling the gaps with clay which only really fixes the problem temporarily.
Pros: Inserts allow you to save space on the drying shelf by not having to put a whole bat on there. Inserts are fairly cheap. Recommend you use a screwdriver to pry out the bat when you're ready to take it off the wheel.
all in all i spent the money to buy the system and a additional 6 inserts but now that the actual bat holder is warping they are pretty much useless. If your using low speed and maybe can sandwich the bat between two heavy flat objects to dry to prevent warping, its great other wise the additional maintenance is really a downside to the product.
Edited: 3 weeks later after regular every other day use, and proper cleaning and drying, they have unfortunately started to warp! A few of the inserts now click and slide around inside the bat form- Argh!! So disappointed :(
Occasionally an insert might be slightly "cupped" to one side, but I just flip it over and use the other side when I throw the next time. Alternating sides keep them more or less uniform. I've had the set for a couple months now, and I throw a few times a week, so I feel like I've definitely gotten my money's worth on this set, and it's still going strong!
My advice is to take care of the set by alternating which side of the insert you use, and always dry off the bat itself after each use and take it off the wheel. Dry everything standing on its side.
I clean & dry every day & no sign of warping at all.
Perfect for trimming.
