Anyone have a recipe or idea for cutting fluid? Been using Liquid Wrench or WD-40 for drilling holes in steel lately and it is ok but thought there might be something better. Used to use Mistic Metal Mover but lately it has gotten so expensive. Thanks

Hey Pete.

I have been using atf for drilling and cutting metal.

Seems to work as good or better than the genuine stuff. I just use whatever is in the shop and put it in a bottle with the cone tip.

Good luck,

Brad

Lots of options out there, pipe threading oil from the plumbing store is good. Then there is soluble oils. Different mists. Get a machinery catalog like travers or enco.

Tap Magic for steel, Lard for cast iron. Motor oil is not the answer, Think about what motor oil is supposed to do. Ellis

I use tread cutting oil when I cut metal comes in a can with a spout so you can drip it on. If I do not have that I use used motor oil

The main idea when drilling steel is to keep the tool cool.

There is nothing better than water for this job.

Water soluble oil is added to keep the drill press and workpiece from rusting and provide limited lubricity.

We used WS 5050 from Rustlick at the tool & die shop. Mix at 25 parts water to one part WS 5050 or to suit your preferences.

You might be looking for this.

You can use a machine oil, chlorine, and sulfur.
When I first started doing machine work in the early 1960's it was what we used. I never made it myself so don't know the amounts. They melted the sulfur in a tin can and added it to the mixture.

The one below would be an easy one to mix up.




Things You'll Need

1 qt. of motor oil

3 cups of dish washing liquid

4 gallons of water





Instructions
1


Purchase the necessary products. Motor oil can be found at your local gas station and dish washing liquid at convenience stores and supermarkets.

2


Add the liquid soap to the water. Mix the soap into the water so that it is dissolved. The soap is the catalyst that will enable the oil and the water to mix; otherwise the different densities will make the oil float on top of the water.




3


Pour in the motor oil. Make sure that the water and the oil are mixed properly together with no separation. The water will act as a coolant in the cutting oil, while the oil acts as the lubricant, as the water is evaporated off by the heat generated in the cutting process.

I had been using a chain and cable spray for oiling the baler chains, when one day I finally read what was printed on the label. Said it could be used for drilling and tapping. Tried it and it works as good as Tap Magic. Don't remember the name.
