    What and where's the power source.? ie voltage.
    Where did you get the peristaltic pump.?
    Not really a heat sink, just a packer. underneath is an SSR to control the air valve, the square with a red blob is a 12v lamp-flasher which gives me the pulses, next to it is a 12v reg. (with a couple of ceramic capacitors ) needed because I am supplying 24 volts from my main panel. The AUTO mode is an M7 relay in the panel.

    I could make a crude system in 1min by just piercing tiny hole in bottle and letting gravity do the work dripping droplets in front of my air nozzle. It would have the same characteristics has Johns system in that it would be independant control of air and fluid but I wouldn't because it won't be affective and look shite.!! . . . . I don't get your point is what I'm trying to say.!

    John's system is metered indepedant control of air and fluid which in practice will be be much more usable than any Fogger sytem. I would relate Fogger equivalent to normal hammer and based on my experience estimate Jonh's sytem to be equivalent to Piano tuners hammer.!! . . . . Both hammers but different.

    Another question is the complexity, some times simple things last longer in industrial enviroment , on the other hand it can be expensive for eventual time to time home use or on a small cheap machine.

    I mean is one thing to design an usefull system. My Russian friend who is an experienced model maker did his system for under 5 minutes from what he had at hand.
    Its another thing to design cheap, clever, reliable and nice looking product/in that order that could cover most of the real needs of fellow machinists.

    You made that for yourself or with the idea of selling it?

    And when you will need the squirting? from my experiments even tiny tube could give tremendous flow. In fact for comparison 1mm nozzle gives 160l/min flow if i remember correctly some plasma cutter torch specifications

    Since there is no requirement for a venturi or pressurized container almost anything works, I just used an old NOGA that I had.

    I made it for myself, I have no commercial intentions whatsoever. I am 80yrs old and in the middle of a delayed midlife crisis.

    If you don't need squirting, then don't use it

    Thanks John I got the Jist of what would be needed to make this work from pic and the Reg I recognised but it was the Blackbox with what looked like a Thermister above it that thru me off.! . . . . . Now I look again can see it's part of the black box.!

    That with the pulsing seems a great idea. I missed that.

    I didn't mention the round black item - this is just a small air reservoir mounted directly on the air valve, (bigger would be better but its what I had lying about) it gives a bit more bite to the pulses and dampens the air gauge a little.

    Just a note about my vision of the correct flow shape. I would like to illustrate how i like it. See photo below.

    I maxed the cooling supply so its more clear whats happening. When milling aluminum you can barely see the coolant flow. When nozzle properly made /IMO/ the overall "flame" shape is long and concentrated and in the middle forms a very nice thicker stream, it basically sounds like a nice small propane turbo burner . No mist at all. You hit a wall with this stream and it all goes down, nothing up in the air.

    that stream bellow is should be enough even for engraving stone and soon i will try it when i have my machine ready :-)
