    I have not used an MQL system. I bought a mister for my manual lathe and used it briefly with a mist compound, BioMist EP. It created a big cloud of mist. I confess, I switched to canola oil and...

    $200 on Amazon, 55 gallon drum (let it run overnight, it'll fill a fair amount), transfer with sprayer pump from farm store or similar

    If you paid with a credit card and it's within 90 days, call your cc company. They should be able to get your money back. Doesn't matter who the money went to. Just tell them it was defective...

    I got some fretting when I was roughing in a ER32 collet (3/8 rougher 1.25" mostly) My local Yamazen apps eng. told me some is normal. I still use the toolholder on something lighter duty (maybe I...

    I misunderstood. I thought they found contaminate in your water.

    If you got bad product from them, they should refund or replace. That's BS. If you paid them with cc, tell them you're going to...

    I assume it's something in your tap water. Have you tried mixing up with distilled water as a test? I built a contraption to mix with the cheapo RO filter that has super low output. It can be done....

    I'm just starting with it today. I did an ok cleaning job on Friday then filled up with the 735. It seems pretty clear even with small amount of old still on the walls, etc. I can't say much about...

    I see. I was previously going to complain that their "simple" rates were buried in a 90 page pdf! I guess they were in there ;)

    I don't see evidence of research on the topic. Got a link?

    MSDS says: "Inhalation: Excessive inhalation of product mist may cause mild irritation"

    I'm pretty cynical. What I imagine is they...

    I checked and the price for a "large box" was 2.5x USPS rate for 2 day delivery. If they have 5 sizes and 3 speeds, you'd think they could easily publish the 15 prices in a chart, but they don't. ...

    How is the "right stuff" better on your lungs? I would bet synthetic oil in your lungs is worse than canola oil. Water soluble oil and we are 98% water.. sure that's sounds good.

    Right. I've never seen any issue of it. Just adding the data point. I have an S500. My understanding from previous thread on the topic is that it might be more noticeable on the pallet machine.

    Golf claps in your general direction. I hope you actually get one built and running so we can hear how it performs. I was shocked to learn you bailed out of a EE program to do this and that you...

    Maybe, maybe not. Cost of doing business. Brother spindles are reasonably priced compared to ones that cost a Haas mini mill. Just expect you'll need one someday.

    So how'd the divots get so big? If it just let go, you'd think they'd be normal size as the defect was below. If they whole thing was soft, that could explain it.
