I think this is a way complicated way to get around bat
pins. Just drill the wheel head.
It's no big deal. Honest, have done it several times.
You might want to pick a standard pin distance, such as the
clay donuts on the wheelhead ANY day before I would try this
three dowel thingy.

Hi....I don't know what a batt pin is, but since my wheel has a catch =
basin around it I found that I couldn't use my largest batts because the =
diameter of the basin was too small. I conquered the problem by cutting =
a ball point pen, minus the ink, into two short pieces. I then attached =
a smaller batt to the wheel, put my two measured pieces in the hole =
spaces still available and connected my bigger batt on top so it cleared =
the sides of the basin. You just have to be sure that the pins you've =
added do not reach the surface of the second batt. =20
