On certain assembled parts that get painted we use liquid dish soap for
taping. If we use oil of any kind the flat paint will not turn flat in

The engineering manager for a company I once worked at told me he used
to use "pink hand soap" for machining aluminum.
My step father, who was a machinist, used to use soapy water to mill
acrylic oeusing chambers to near perfect transparency. I use valcool
and sharp carbide to get similar results.
Personally, I like coolant that provides lubricity, rust protection and
low foam, though there's something to be said for the "spring fresh"
