Thanks for that information Jeff. I cannot imagine how I would react to see=
oval hole in the bats. The one I have has 2 rounds holes, but they are =
too big and wobble around when I pull up in the beginning. However, i =
stuff them with stiff clay before I start and that solves the wobbling. =
again for the warning. I will cerainly ask the supplier what sort of holes =
in them before ordering.

I have the Plasti-bats and mine have one round hole and one oval hole. I have
no wobble or shimmy from the oval hole. I use the round hole as the primary
hole and place it over a marked pin on the wheel head. The oval hole goes
over a secondary pin (unmarked). That way I can take the thrown pot off my
wheel, set it aside, and replace it later on the exact same pins it was
If the bat wobbles that indicates side-to-side movement. The oval pin is not
oval in a side direction. The wobble means the pin is too small for the hole
(or the hole is too big for the pin). If the pin is too small....get a bigger
pin. If the sizes don't work out just right, try metric sizes. They fill in
the odd sizes.
KEEP CENTERED...as if we're not trying to.
