I've recently adopted an older lockerbie EK with bat pins 11.25" apart. Is there any place still selling non-10" bats? Or do I need to buy undrilled bats and drill them myself??

 

Thanks!!

I don't use pins, stick the bats on with a doughnut of clay, seems to work, just need to reform it every so often and level it.

You can still buy un-drilled bats-there are less choices.
Or you can drill your wheel head to standard pins and they will all fit

Drill the head to 10" pin spacing: then you can use  any and all of the bats on the market!
