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.
J.W. Winco makes the blade 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 — you might have better luck making one yourself — 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.
