I can order replacement pins and have them put in, that part is easy what bats to I want??? I haven't thrown in decades and will probably to bowls and mugs and things like that??? Cost effective would be wonderful
Putting the pins in is pretty easy. There are so many bats out there and I have masonite (inexpensive but will eventually warp. Mine are just showing wear now after about 4 years of moderate use). I also have some plastic bats - I use those when I throw larger things that I want to dry very slowly. I also have, and love, a Wonderbat and a set of inserts. Wonderbat is no longer made but StudioPro bats are almost identical and a terrific product. Clayscapes Pottery sells them and I think we get a discount there. Also, StudioPro was a sponsor of ClayShareCon and you may be able to order from them directly. The bat system is a bit more expensive but it really helps with space saving (I have a small studio) and is perfect for bowls and mugs etc. I find them well worth the money and my set is still damage free after 5 years. I only wish I had more inserts. I'm going to have to order them.
