Please take a look at this little movie. We are in the process of building
new pages for our clay and glaze site.
Cutting bats on a band saw
PS. There will soon be a companion site with step by step photos of how to
build the machine seen in the clip.

Hey Ron, I make bats with a jig like that, except I use a table saw, since
I don't have a band saw.
The square bat blank is centered on the pivot point, which slides in the
channel of the saw table bed. First I cut off each corner, making an
then cut off the 8 new corners, making a 16-agon.
These couple of extra steps are required since a table saw is not designed
to make curved cuts.
At this time the pivot point is held stationary, and the technique is the
same as yours. Since very little material is being cut, it works to cut a
circle with a table saw blade. I use a roofing nail, rather than a dowel
as my pivot.
You can also use the bat cutting jig to make homemade pasta. If you
order now, you will also receive free the Ronco Potter's Pocket Pal,
a $9.95 value. It slices, it dices.
