David I’m going to put on a parrot costume and come and sit on your shoulder because I seem to be parroting you, but you have to dress as a pirate with an eye patch and wooden leg 😆

But yes, machining of this type is a bit too heavy for our little friends. Our machinist would use kerosene/water mix, I think it was 60/40, for any cast material as regular cutting lubricants are not suitable, for some reason kerosene is, just have to watch your heat and subsequently your eyebrows or POOF.
Really though, Kerosene has a low flash point when diluted so you’re ok.
