Bat making
« on: January 04, 2019, 04:35:46 AM »

Hi all I am looking at getting into making some bats and was wondering if anyone knows of any Australian bat makers that would sell part made bats for cheap

Im in the same boat, only in the UK - Im sure that there will be plenty of more knowledgeable individuals that can help you more, but I think the best thing to do is speak to some of the Aussie bat makers and see what they say. JP Gavan comes across as a decent bloke (apologies if hes the opposite side of the country!) so could be worth a shout.

Have you tried Ian Callen? He's got all the Aussie willow, and runs batmaking courses for beginners. Many Aussie batmakers work with Ian.

Also Andrew O'Hoy, Lyrebird Cricket (Gippsland). Nice guy, he'll likely help you out. Tell him I recommended him to you.
