These bats are made from a premium MDF board with no added formaldehyde. They are slightly absorbant, very resistant to warping, and tough. Their 3/8" thickness makes them extremely ridged during removal from the wheel. Medex is an enviornmentally sensitive product utilizing 90% recycld wood fibers.
Each bat has 10" on center holes for standard 3/8" bat pins. One hole is oval to accommodate small variations in pin spacing.
Adjusting Hole Sizes
Bat pins frequently vary in their diameter. The slots and holes on these bats are cut to fit snugly. If they are too tight on a particular set of pins, they should be loosened after a couple of placements and removals of the bats. Alternatively, you can roll up a small scrap of sandpaper and pass it through the holes one or twice.
Bats should be cleaned and stacked or stored vertically on a bat rack after use. Do not soak wood bats of any kind. Pots should be wire-cut from the bats after throwing and removed when they are leather hard. The remaining pad of clay should be scraped off before storing the bats. Occasional sponge cleaning is fine.
