Hydrobats are made of Hydrostone which makes them 10 times stronger than regular 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 pottery bat with a wire.
The Hydro-Bat was designed to fit on wheel heads that have
bat pins spaced 10 inches 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. Due to their smaller
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" pottery 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
. If you have a wheel head with pins positioned at 9" apart we make Adapter HB9A which will allow you to use our pottery bats. If you don't have bat
pins in your wheel, no problem, our product works great with a bat
gripper or grabber which allows you to attach any kind of bat to a wheel
head. Custom adapters can be made for any size wheel head or pin
