    Just got to make some brackets to secure the table and boards, what is best to prevent the chips building up on the machine ? I thought of a cylinder vacuum cleaner on a small arm by the tool but if using the face mill the chips will fly off in every direction.

    If you're not using flood coolant then vacuum can help - if the pickup nozzle is well designed and placed, compressed air clears chips in deeper holes, and combination of the two can sometimes be really useful,

    Yes I plan on using a Fog buster that blasts a slight bit of oil onto the tool so it lubricates it. It doesn't do an effective job of cooling the tool down however. I need to think of that too.
