Plastic Throwing Bats
Plastic bats are easily the most durable choice for throwing bats. They do not wear out due to heavy use, making them popular with schools and group studios. Plastic bats do not absorb water and therefore won’t swell or de-laminate and the pin-holes remain true. It is, however, necessary to cut pieces free with a wire shortly after throwing as moisture will not be absorbed from the clay where it contacts the bat. If left too long, pieces will warp or crack due to uneven drying.

Plastic Throwing Bat
Made of solid plastic textured on one side to prevent clay from sliding during centering. Holes are drilled 10” on center, one hole slightly larger to accommodate variations in bat pin positions. Also available undrilled.

Speedball Bats
Made of injection-molded plastic with both 9" and 10" pin holes recessed in a grid-like understructure leaving no holes in the surface of the bat. There is a recessed ledge around the perimeter to get your fingers underneath for easy removal. The top surface is roughened to prevent clay from sliding during centering. Available in both traditional round as well as a space-saving 7” square that still fits both 9" and 10" bat pins but requires much less space on studio shelves.

Plaster Bats
Plaster is the traditional material for throwing bats. Pieces can be left on plaster bats until they self-release because plaster continues to absorb moisture from the clay longer than even masonite or pressed wood. Shipping plaster bats has always been prohibitive due to weight, cost and damages, until now.... Make your own flat or customized plaster bats at home with the Quick Release Mold System: all the benefits of plaster bats without the shipping cost and trouble!

Masonite & Pressed Wood Bats
These types of bats are made of dense, press-board type materials. Not as durable as plastic, they are semi-absorbent and should not be submerged in or saturated with water as they will warp and de-laminate. The benefits of this absorbent quality are: (1) clay adheres better to the surface during centering; (2) moisture will be absorbed from the clay during the early stages of drying; pieces can be left to stiffen longer before cutting free with a wire.

Duron Bats (Pacifica)
Made of sturdy 1/4" Masonite with pin holes drilled 10” on center (one slightly larger to accommodate pin variations). Duron Bats are available in 12”, 13” and 15” diameters.

NEW! WonderBat
WonderBats perform similar to plaster in that they pull moisture from the bottom of the pot as it dries. In many cases there is no need to wire off, but a wire still may be necessary. It will depend on the characteristics of your particular clay. WonderBats are made from 1/2" thick material and thus resists warping and are very durable. All bats are drilled for standard 3/8" diameter pins on 10" centers and now have reinforced grommets in the pin hole.

10 times stronger than pottery plaster bats!

The Hydro-Bat is made of Hydro-Stone, a USG product containing cement and crystalline silica, that is 8 to 10 times stronger then pottery plaster. The surface is scratch resistant yet absorbs water like plaster eliminating the need to cut your pieces off the bat with a wire.

The Hydro-Bat was designed to fit on wheel heads that have bat pins spaced 10” apart on center. The hard rubber grommets cast into the underside of each Hydro-Bat will not swell or change shape and are sized to fit over a 3/8” diameter bat pin head. (If your bat pins are not 3/8” you will need to purchase new ones.)

(a) Due to their small diameter, the grommets under the 8.5” and 10” Hydro-Bat’s are spaced 6” apart and require the HBA Adapter to convert standard 10 inch pins to 6 inches. This adapter is made of sturdy polyethelene plastic and fits snuggly over the 10” bat pins on your wheel head. It has two upfacing 3/8” diameter bat pins fused in at 6” apart. The 8.5” & 10” Hydro-Bats fit onto these pins. Similarly, the

6” Mini Hydro-Bat has grommets spaced 4” apart and requires the

HB6A Adapter to convert the standard 10” pins to 4”. (If desired, these adapters can be used as templates to permanently drill 4” or 6” holes into your wheelhead.)

New Hump Mold Forms!
Now available in four different profiles and a variety of sizes.

Designed for throwing or slab working, the Hydro-Bat Hump Molds are also made of Hydro-Stone for strength, durability and water absorbency. They feature the same rubber grommets as the standard Hydro-Bats cast underneath for an easy and snug fit on the potter's wheel. All Hydro-Bat Hump Molds fit over 3/8” diameter bat pins spaced 10” on center except for the 8” & 9” Plate Hump Molds: these require the HBA Adapter to convert the 10” pins to 6” as explained in the Hydro-Bat information above (a).
