ID:	19664, which cost about a fiver and I have a project to use an arduino to control a peristaltic pump (which I 3D printed a short while ago) and an air solenoid valve. I intend to see what separate bursts of air and fluid is like for clearing chips and then dispensing coolant. I have all I need for the experiment, except my health has taken a downturn for the time being, but I want to get some progress on it.

    Cheers,

    It takes all sorts to make a world, I am just glad I am not one of them.

    Sounds interesting, I'll have to Google "peristaltic" first though :)

    Sorry to hear about your health problems, hope you feel better soon, annoying isn't it when you've got toys to play with but can't really get to...

ID:	19665 This is the pump, it basically massages the fluid though a soft tube, like the muscle action in our guts that keeps 'everything' moving. With a stepper to drive it, you can get very precise doses at high (ish) pressure.

    I used a peristaltic pump once to blow the paraffin electrolyte through a spark erosion tool.
    Now, who would believe that you cannot get silicone rubber tubing that is paraffin proof?
    Check your coolant! It is weird-a-mundo :(

    Thanks for all the comments, I'll post more info/video soon.

    On a different subject, does anyone use a face mill with their 2.2kw chinese spindle or am I best using an end mill?

    i tried a 12mm single bit indexed tool on mine and it worked but i don't think any bigger will go, just not enough torque/power at lower speeds and you don't want a big mill whipping round at 24k ;)
