I don't need mist for most stuff, so don't want to spend a lot on it, but i
t would be nice to have. I have a CNC router with a high speed spindle whic
h holds endmills up to 6mm.
So far I have only tested it with water. It won't siphon up the water at al
l unless I run the air at very high pressure. If I lift the reservoir above
the nozzle then the water flows too freely, even with the air off. I've us
ed mist coolant in the past. The unit I had years ago worked well enough th
at I never had to fuss with it, and so never learned anything about how it
worked. The only thing I can think of now is to keep the reservoir high, bu
t somehow restrict the flow. Any tips, or should I just toss the thing?
