Hereís what Monarch sent me:
It's been several years, and I didn't take any pictures, so I'm going from (what passes for) memory . The flat way and taper attachment wipers weren't even close. There was no way they were going to fit into my wiper castings. I donít remember what the V wipers were like, but they were not going to work in my castings. I called Monarch and they said that was what was supposed to be on my machine. They took back the wipers that I couldn't use. I think I was only able to use the spindle wiper and the cross slide wiper.

If anyone has a list of wipers that work for the round-dial please post!!!
There were two types of material used in the wipers from Monach. Most were a white felt that looks just like the F1 felt that I got from McMaster-Carr. The rest were made of some sort of weird laminate, two layers of white plastic with some sort of open-celled foam sandwiched in between. I think these were for the flat ways and T/A slide. None of them were the felt/rubber laminate you mention. All of the wipers that came off of the machine appeared to be felt which had turned black with decades of oil. (Itís possible that some maintenance type put shop-made wipers on; I think the machine was overhauled at least twice.)
Hereís one of my shop-made V-wipers:
And the inner flat way wipers:
The hole in the wiper is for a small ball oiler:
The saddle/ways have worn enough that the saddle is touching the inner way. There is no automatic oiler line there, so I added the ball oilers to get some oil in there. Works great.
