opposite problem with batts

So, I had a sheet of masonite sitting around and needed some
quck and dirty batts. I cut some octagons and drilled them
to fit my batt pins. Things went along quite well for a while.
Oh, did I tell you? I tend to throw with a fair amount of water.
Well, it seems as if the masonite did just a skoch of shrinking
after a few times swimming through my throwing some pottery.
Had to gently re-drill the batts in order for them to fit. I expect
them to get wobbly/wonky at some point, but for now they are
quite snug.

Shrinking masonite. Who wudda guessed?
