Drawings for no fog coolant mister
#11
Certainly!!  Here it is, I only have a couple of the same photo, just with changes in lighting. I made the rods and the clamps also, and I can get it at just about anything I need to. I will see about getting some better pics of it, maybe later today if time permits.

   

I had to bring the unit inside for the winter, since my machines are out in the garage at present. I plan to build a second one so that I have one for Kool Mist or Syn-Kool (what I am using now) and one for WD-40, then mount both of them on wheeled stands, similar to IV trolleys. That way I can be ready for either ferrous material or aluminum, and I can move them to the lathe, the mill, or where ever they might be needed.

Hi Terry. Thanks for posting the drawings for people to use. I have compressed air in my shed. I have been thinking about coolant for my small lathe and mill for some time now. My main problem is I don't have a recovery system for either. Do you recover the used coolant via drip tray etc or is the volume small enough to just clean up after a job and treat it as disposable. At the moment I rely on a squirt bottle with a kero/oil mix for coolant but for things like parting off I would love a better solution. Have been toying with the idea of a gravity feed system but without recovery options I think it would get too messy. I am not an experienced machinist, just doing my best and learning along the way.Would love to hear some opinions on whether this system might suit me or not.

Thanks for posting the plans. I look forward to building one for myself.

I've been brushing on heavy cutting oil. Since my shop is below my house, the smoke and odors have been a problem. And as we all know too well, sulfured cutting oil doesn't exactly smell like roses.
