    Taper cleaners /wipers for Morse tapers

    I had an epiphany and didn't want to spend any money.
    In my efforts to improve my knowledge of machining i came across articles relating to maintaining your machine which should help to achieve a high standard of repeat ability.

    As like many, I have a bad habit of throwing my tools into a draw and not paying too much attention to their machine interfaces. if you have ever had your big engineering drills spin on tapers (MT3 in my case).
    whilst spending my hours looking at images on pinterest I came across:-

    A 16 price tag was a bit to steep for me
    So in the true tradition of homemadetools - I made my own

    The wiper is made from cutting strips of scotchbrite scouring pad and inserting it into the fork.
    Then simply twist it inside your MT3 Taper sleeves to remove debris & contamination.

    Jon, I want to upload and share an stl file for others to print themselves, is it possible to have .stl added to the import list.
    will upload file once approved.

    Please find attached STL file for 3D printing etc.

    MT3 Sleve wiper.stl

    I am now going to embellish it with a handle, just didn't want to waste PLA minerals if it wasn't going to turn out well.

    (Thanks Jon)
