View Full Version : Tip cleaners Franz / OlPilot Help!

I'm looking for a specific type of tip cleaner, this type looks like spiral flute reamers instead of the typical ring shank type. They are in the familiar looking fold open aluminum case along with the file blade. I can't find them any where. Does anyone know where these can be found? Maybe OP or Franz?

Thanks for the info.
Well I have now the Wypo and I can try to clean a cutting tip. I'll end up spending 15 minutes attempting it and the results are so-so. The guy I work with (35+ year’s experience) can take the same torch and clean it with the other type, spend less than a minute on it and the tip is sharp like a new pencil. So I tried his cleaners and got the same results.

Sorry guys, all I use is a pinvise with the appropriate drill bit and a flat file. There's just too damn many cleaners I don't use in those fold up sets.

I think there is another company called Werco that makes spiral fluted cleaners.
