WA - System (Wheel Attachment)
The WA Board is a bat that is used to prepare and work with slabs to use with the WA. The groove in the bottom helps in locating bat pins for easy attachment. The smooth surface allows the maker to compress the slab or add texture with the help of a pottery wheel. The WA Board is also helpful to manage large plates as they are drying. It is made of porous wood fiber so clay releases from it well, but it is not a standard throwing bat.
The WA also has the location bat pin groove.
The WA Spacer and Pin are placed in the center hole of the Wheel Attachment. The WA Spacer can be pressed through the WA to remove the centered plate form from the WA bat. The Spacer can be used to elevate a piece from the table to give you room for an angled lip.
2 versions are available:
- 10" bat pins distance (254 mm) for standard wheels like Shimpo, Roderveld, etc.
- 250 mm bat pins distance for Rohde wheels
