    Default Chip fan

    Does anybody use any chip fans? I am currently using some from Lang but they won't deal with my tool vendor and I have a hard time getting replacement fan blades. I am wondering if there are different types of chip fans out there.

    IIRC there has been postings on it before, in the CNC section.

    I use the Lang, but I'd like to see the Kaiser in action. The Kaiser doesn't spring shut like the lang, and can take 12k rpm, coolant thru.

    I tried the Kaiser one before and it was not as good as the ones that spring back.

    As machinists, aren't we all chip fans?

    The lang can take 12k and has coolant thru, maybe you have an older model?

    Yeah, but more a fan of some than of others. Those long stringy ones? Someone else can love those.

    Valuable coffee break time is wasted if the machinists has to remove his own chips.

    Here I was thinking it was permanently attached to the spindle with the tool sticking out below. Kind of like a endmill holder with a fan attached on the outside.
