Coolant bath / submerged routing?

Hi all. I want to cut out a few amplifier chassis out of 2mm aluminium. I’m thinking to do this in a shallow coolant bath:

  • to contain/catch swarf
  • to keep the bit cool
  • to prevent the bit from clogging

Good idea? Bad idea?

Not really required :slight_smile:
But a cutting fluid will help.

With this sheet stock try masking tape and superglue and you should be good to go.
