In terms of video's it's pretty basic as it's meant for the American audience of the program How It's Made. But it does give a reasonable insight into batmaking.

So if you're after something more detailed there's the longer Salix video here:
http://www.salixcricketbats.com/video/manufacturing_video.html

Over the next few days I'm going to compile a list of all the videos and also some photo's.

Oh God!! That's so cool - I so want to be a batmaker.

I'm just one lottery win away from giving up work and starting my own bat company!

Would obviously depend on the shop's prices but the top of the range Pod1's retail at about 240, the RRP's 300.
