great space saver
from Los Angeles, CA
Comments about Amaco Plasti-Bats:
These are really great space savers, I particularly like them for classroom use because of this. While they are smaller than round bats, most of my student work (particularly my high school beginning/intermediate ceramics students), aren't making large pieces yet. I do have larger bats for more advanced students to create larger pieces. Another plus is that the holes for bat pins go through the bat (some systems are hidden), which makes it easy for students to put onto the wheel. some potential downsides: - due to the smaller size of the bat, the diameter of your piece will be correspondingly smaller. This isn't a major issue unless you throw large platters etc.- because it's square it can be a bit disorienting when spinning on the week
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

First Time Using Blick
By The Pottery Chest
from Simi Valley, CA
As a ceramic artist, I have ordered products on-line, but this is the first time using Blick. Everything was delivered in good condition and although there was a delay for a back order, the products were delivered promptly. At the time of ordering, Blick had the best prices for both the products I purchased and shipping cost, but what stood out was receiving constant communication about the status of my order. I will still shop around for the best prices, but Blick is now my first stop.
from Calgary, Alberta, Canada
I ordered 12" before and like it, better than wood one as it is lighter and don't absorb water. So I order 3 12" and 3 14" this time. All of the14" pin holes are very tight to put on wheelhead and impossible to take it off, but 12" are fine. I have to redrill one of the hole to make it fit.
Merchant response: Thank you for your review. Please know that if you feel these bats are defective or won't work for you, we're happy to make it right. Just call 1-800-723-2787 to speak to a Customer Care Agent.

9 inch plastic bat
By Brandi's doggy momma
from San Antonio, TX
Love the size! Love that it has exposed holes instead of holes on the underside.
good price value
from rehoboth DE
Fine for throwing small pieces. Visually a bit disorienting. Not good for larger work as your hands hit the edges. Round bats are better but take up more space. price on these makes them tempting.

I throw a lot of smaller projects and this square bat allows me to place many on my shelf to dry at once.

Plastic Bats from AMACO - only years of
By Hal Hansen
Regretably, I have used these just a short time. Some of the older ones we use are becoming 'cupped' or warped. Hopefully these newer bats will be warp resistant. Only time (YEARS) will tell! Hal
