Economy MR MDF Wooden Pottery Wheel Throwing Batts with 10mm pin holes

Economy MR MDF (Moisture Resistant) Pottery Wheel Throwing Batts - The Natural Workshop -  10mm pin holes at 10" / 254mm centres for Shimpo wheel style


Picture the have just spent the last hour throwing the most beautiful pot you've ever made. You go to remove it from the wheel by gently trying to pick it up and BANG it drops on the floor. All of your hard work is gone. This is extremely frustrating but easily fixed with our beautifully machined Economy MR MDF batts.


At The Natural Workshop we understand your frustration and because of this, we now sell high quality Economy MR MDF batts for your potter’s wheel. Our batts are CNC machined from Economy MR MDF which is purchased from FSC sources. Batts not only allow you to easily remove your pot from the wheel, they also allow you to return the piece you just created to the exact centre of your wheel to work on it again later.


Having the right batt can make all the difference. If you would prefer a specific size batt then please don't hesitate to contact us and we can look at that for you as we machine all of our timber in our rural workshop, right here in Cambridgeshire.
