Wheel-Throwing Bat's (RK-5T & RK-5TF Specific)
Our bats have been manufactured in house using CNC Technology. They are Australian made and manufactured and we are also using a Weathertex product as our primary bat material.
Weathertex is an Australian owned company that manufactures board material from sustainably sourced local hardwood forests. Their boards consist of 97% hardwood and 3% natural waxes for water repellency. They have a less than zero carbon footprint.
We have two portable wheels in the Nidec-Shimpo range:
1. RK-5T Portable Potters Wheel
2. RK-5TF Portable Potters Wheel
Both of these units have the same 178mm (7") Wheel-Head. The wheels come with 250mm plastic bats and we also supply these Click Here To View!
We have also manufactured 250mm bats to fit as an alternative to the factory plastic bats, for those who prefer a sustainable compressed hardwood alternative.
We are trying our best to increase our effort to support local Australian business and also to use sustainable products where we can, and we hope to increase our effort in this moving forwards,
