    I always liked the term "round-trip meal ticket"
    The technical term is to "review input".

      Here is some info on using ethanol as coolant.




      Ethanol Coolant: Ethanol is a form of alcohol that results naturally through the sugar fermentation process and is environmentally friendly. It also happens to be an ideal coolant for high-speed, micro machining because a thinner-than-water viscosity allows the ethanol to quickly cover and cool more surface area on fast-moving micro tooling. The low evaporation point of ethanol makes it an efficient cooling solution and also eliminates the need for disposal and recycling, as well as their associated costs. Plus, ethanol coolants leave no residue on machined parts, which makes costly secondary operations, like de-greasing, obsolete — maximizing throughput, increasing efficiency and reducing labor costs.

      Note: Ethanol coolant should only be used for machining of non-ferrous materials and Datron offers an oil coolant option for customers who machine steel-based materials.
