 WonderBats


 WonderBat

12 inch and 14 inch Wonderbats


WonderBats perform similar to plaster in that there is no need to wire off. WonderBats are made from1/2" 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.

 


Use

* To get the clay to stick to WonderBats when they are new, wipe the throwing surface of the WonderBat with a wet sponge and then wipe off any excess moisture with a dry towel.
* When throwing on WonderBats there is no need to wire-off. When the clay reaches the leather-hard stage it will release from the WonderBat.
* WonderBats do not need to be waterproofed, in fact we strongly recommend against it. The material they are made out of is extremely water resistant, but is also porous, which it why they perform similar to plaster. If they are sealed or waterproofed it can greatly reduce, or eliminate, their ability to release when the clay becomes leather-hard.

Cleaning

* We do not recommend cleaning WonderBats when dry by scraping them due the hazards associated with clay dust.
* When washing WonderBats, be sure to moisten both surfaces equally. A mild detergent can be used if needed. They can be fully immersed if desired.
* WonderBats should be dried on edge with adequate spacing between them. A dish rack works well for this.
* Do not lay WonderBats flat when drying them. This can lead to them becoming dished. If this happens, thoroughly wet both surfaces of the affected WonderBat and dry on edge as described above.

Storage

* WonderBats should be thoroughly dried, as described above, before storage.
* WonderBats can be stored on edge or flat as desired.

The Universal Bat with Insert

All production bats but one are simply flat circles intended for wheel heads with two batpins.  The exception is the Universal Insert Bat which saves space when making pieces with a small footprint.  The outer bat is 1/2" thick Medex and the inserts are 1/4" Duron which fit flush with the top of the outer bat. Inserts remove easily yet fit snugly enough that the cavity stays free of clay and slurry.
