Item details

Batmate is a tool to helps secure your bat to your pottery wheel head with its grippy material. Xiem Batmate is the perfect solution for that annoying bat jitter and warping problem. Place Xiem Batmate below your problem bats on the wheel and instantly your warped bats become stable.

The Xiem Batmate is also a great tool for trimming bowls and plates.

The Xiem Batmate is available in 12” diameter or 14” diameter. Tan color is currently not available.


1. Xiem Batmate expands when it absorbs water.
2. Soak the Batmate in water and wring out.
3. Place on a dry wheel head.
4. Place the bat on top.
5. Rinse clay buildup with water after use.


1. Hand or machine washable in cold water.
2. Keep moist in a ziplock bag for storage.
(If it dries out, it will stiffen due to the material. Simply drop in water and it will return to its original shape.)

Arrived punctually. I'm new to using these bat grippers, but I assume I'll get used to it. Happy to have it!

Exactly what I was looking for. I have a small wheel (Shimpo Aspire) and I bought the larger of the two and cut it down to size...making myself two of these :)
