To attach bat to the wheelhead, you must throw a small
ball of clay, flatten it out to cover at least 15cm of
the wheelhead Create two grooves in the disc of clay,
then create a channel from the centre of the disc to the
outside,( this will drain excess water and stop the
bat bed from becoming too moist). The wooden bat can
now be centred on the clay disc, and ware thrown and
removed on the bat.
