Pure & Simple Bat Molds
The Quick-release Plaster Mold System allows you to make your own plaster bats easily and economically. With these unique molds you can make both flat and domed plaster bats, each keyed for fast, secure, and perfectly centered wheelhead mounting.
The smaller Quick-release disk is attached to your wheelhead with your bat pins. The larger half is used to cast the triangular impression in the back of your bats. The resulting keyed bat simply drops onto this disk for a centered bat that doesn’t wear and doesn’t wobble. Use the flat bats to throw any form. The domed bats provide a smart, time-saving way to throw bowls, lids and plates complete. The foot ring or lid knob is formed at the same time – trimming is eliminated, cutting your work time in half! Finally, a cost-effective and hassle-free way to create uniform dinner sets.

Plaster bats offer a definite advantage over other bats because they absorb moisture from the base of the clay form. Pots dry evenly and release easily, with no need for wire cutting. The Pure & Simple Mold System allows you to make your own plaster bats simply and economically, for about one dollar a bat! Our "Quick-Release" wheel head attachment will quickly and easily center and secure you bat perfectly every time.
