For those who have worked with it, what are the best ways to go about machining Garolite? I've got carbide mills coming, but was wondering if speeds should be as high as I suspect, and what's a good coolant that won't contaminate the material? (it's going to be glued up in some places and will be in high vacuum, so nothing that can outgas significantly.) I was planning on using clean shop air for coolant and dust removal (PPE covered) as I want to minimize contamination of the part, but all thoughts are welcome.
