  • Way Wipers

    I would like to replace the wipers on my lathe. I found material from Mc Master Carr. The felt material is very dense, it is listed in their catalog as extra firm F 1 Before I order a 12 x 12 x 1/4 piece of material I will only use a small part of, I was wondering if someone knows of something that may use extra firm felt available at my local hardware store. Thanks for any info. Stan

          I think they're a great idea. In addition to wiping back larger chips, they hold a great deal of lube and help keep an oil film on the ways.

            I replaced the old one on my mill with this stuff:

            Works great. Really reasonably priced too.
