    Extraction, extraction and some more extraction ;-)
    If you will not be swayed by logic or experience simply pick the idea you
    like best, but ask yourself why you sought advice in the first place and,
    for a simple life, perhaps consider not doing so in future

    So in a home / garage environment, Ill need to build something for this? Not sure what the costs / technicalities are for this.

    I could continue to do Flood on my Triac however my new machine will not have Flood, well, not planned for. I may reconsider this.

    Cold air needs too much air, Ive looked at this before. I dont think its a DIY option.

    So Id like to know what options we have for 100% dry cutting. Clearly its possible .....?

    Even if cutting dry you will need to move chips and vacuum isn't even close to air for getting chips out of the way in holes and slots, so why not look at something like Boyan's solution to add a little lube to your air, then you can use a good bathroom extractor to keep the mist from filling the workshop,

    So best to look at fog buster or similar? I built my own but limited success with it.

    PS. If you do it properly similar to mine, it DOES NOT mist. It spits small droplets, not mist. Thats why its called Foggless
