    Default What felt for way wipers

    Now that the T&G lathe is running I guess I should make and install some replacement way wipers.
    Can someone advise me of the correct type of felt to use? Somewhere I thought I heard that F1 was the correct stuff, but I have also heard that the liner from an old winter boot will work.

    Does anyone know of a source other than McMaster Carr? They won't ship to Canada :-((

    The F-5 felt sounds familiar.

    The felt liners work just fine. Earl.

    Well, I bought a 12" square of F5 and some round wick from this vendor.
    All I can say I is that" I wish every company I dealt with was as pleasant and helpful". Really fast shipper as well.
