The Universal Insert Bat saves a great amount of shelf space when making pieces with a small "footprint". Great for throwing production mugs, cups, or any small piece that you would prefer to dry directly on the bat. 
The outer bat is 1/2 inch thick medex and the inserts are 1/4 inch thick which fit flush with the top of the outer bat. The inserts in 13 inch bats are 5-1/2 x 5-1/2 inches. Inserts remove easily yet fit snugly enough that the cavity stays free of clay and slurry.
 
Care Of Bats:

All wood and plastic bats require some care and cleaning.
The life of all wood-derived bats such as Forever and Medex can be extended by taking good care of them.
You should always:
1. Clean them after each use.
2. Reverse them each time you use them (more important for large circular bats than inserts).
3. Avoid flexing or bending them when they are wet.

Warped bats can usually be flattened by drying them in a stack with weight on them.
Reversing them each time you use them is the single most important thing you can do to extend the life of your bats.
