  • Bandsaw Coolant

    What's the concensus on the best coolant to use with a bandsaw? I'll be cutting mostly cold rolled.

    Thanks

    I use water soluable oil with a flood system it will work with most things as you can adjust the amount of oil depending on material conditions feeds and speeds.

      I would suggest that you get a good synthetic for all of your machines. The synthetics when mixed properly are extremely cost effective and provide excellent lubrication to the cutting edges. They have less tendency to go rotten like soluable oil products and produce less mess and easier cleanup. An small aquarium pump bubbling through the coolant will prolong its life by increasing oxygen content.
