In Topic: Finding Bats To Fit Shimpo Rk-2 Wheel Head

The wheel head drilling to make it fit standard bats if you can is the best bet.

The layout is critical but not that big of deal if your are handy with tools. The key points are measure 3 times and make sure its right-Check it gain before drilling-have a sharp center punch -use a smaller 1/8 inch bit 1st for 1st hole before using your larger bit.Did I mention check it before drilling?

If your wheel head comes off then use a drill press-if not a good drill will work fine.

If you do this on your wheel head than all bats will fit as they are some what standard and you will only have to drill two holes.Or you can drill your bats which is also no big deal its just more for for every bat.

I have made a 100s or more bats over the decades before they where offered by everyone -Bats once where hard to fine and easy to make.This was before Northstar and other jumped in.This would be another topic making your own bats.I still make and use mu own plaster bats. I use the Blue northstars  for larger flat stuff.

The Northstar blue bats are way better quality than speedballs.
