|COOLANT AND CUTTING OIL
COOLANT: All operations may be performed with soluble oil, 1
part to 50 parts water, applied as a spray mist.
Tapping is done with "TAP MAGIC" or equivalent.
CUTTING OIL: NOT recommended when machining copper alloys except on screw
machine operations where it performs as a coolant and lubricant. To prevent metal
oxidation, finished parts MUST be cleaned with a detergent-type solvent.
Silicon carbide and aluminum oxide wheels can be used, with the aluminum oxide wheels
preferred for MoldStar alloys. As a general rule, the selection of the grinding
wheel is best left to the wheel manufacturer, since so many variables must be considered.
Emulsions of soluble oil and water are satisfactory grinding fluids.
