Greetings from Diane! Well, here at J.W. Winco we not only help design engineers, but also machinists, home hobbyists and others who can use our parts and our tools. Today we have a tool-related tip to feature.
You know, we love it when customers are so excited about our products that they want to share what they've discovered. Like this example: The Toolmonger blog included our T-slot scrapers in their 10 Favorite Tools of 2008. Here's what Benjamen Johnson had to say about them:
"How do you get that gunk out of your milling table's T-slots? It's almost impossible to clean the shavings out of these oily recesses--unless you've got this scraper designed just for the purpose. Its T-shaped head matches the shape of the table slots to scrape the metal debris away. [The blade is made] from hardened chrome-vanadium steel and the handle from red and black cadmium-free plastic. Why tout your product as cadmium free? Used in some pigments, cadmium can be an environmental hazard. This product is hard to find...but if you go to J.W. Winco's website you can order a scraper that fits 14-20mm (9/16″ to 3/4″) T-slots for $6.70 or a scraper that fits 22-32mm (7/8″ to 1-1/4″) T-slots for $14.64."
Mr. Johnson, we are delighted to have one of our tools included in your Top Ten List. Readers, you can view all the specs on our Web site here.
