    These crazy things are so expensive and I know there has to be away around it . On amazon you can buy a big sheet of felt for 20 bucks , just curious whats so special with the felt wipes you find online . Just curious if anyone has used anything else or made one ?

    If getting the wrong material, you could damage your head.

    I just buy the Roland wipers. IIRC I pay about 30 bucks for a pair on my SP540V. Not taking a chance on ruining the heads. Your printer should be making you a lot of money. Show it some love once in a while.;)

    We used the make-up applicator wedges from the dollar store without issue when I worked at a previous print shop.
