Default Note self...

Next time cutting aluminum w/ a mister.

DO NOT place a nice sheet of Mahogany plywood on the table w/o changing it.

All the jobs cut recently were imprinted in oil on a 4x8, yes, the whole sheet.
It's the dopey things you forget when bizzie, ya just plum pass it up not realizing.

Forgot where I seen it but someone uses a 1/4" sheet of mdf/ldf? over the spoilboard top.
That'll prolly work being we cut alum & acrylic all day. Oil doesnt affect acrylic.

Oh well.. live n' learn.

That’s an unfortunate mistake but a good topic .
I’ve often wondered what would be the best way to protect the spoil board, or just change it when cutting oil is involved?

I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

I've only done aluminum 4 times so far but I don't use a spoil board or a mister. I "Kind of" protect the bed surroundings and I used a WD40 spray bottle. Still messy but it works for me.

Lol... chuck in a 3/8" O flute and dig into 1" aluminum and tell me about a "mess"

WD40 = stinkie. Cant stand that smell, as bad as Glad bags w/ febreze in it.

My sniffing is confined to Shellac finish. No metal,plastic or MDF allowed in my shop for cutting, period.

Just saying,
Herb

Yum, this between 2 pieces of bread, now that sounds like a meal, as long as the metal can is your kind of taste.

My metalworking shop and my woodworking shop have always been completely separate with the metalworking being done in the garage and the woodworking in the basement, but now in a separate shop building. I learned to keep oils and metal chips away from good wood a very long time ago. Now my metalworking is across town since I gave almost all of my metal working tools to my son. He is a certified welder and works mostly in metal, so it seemed best to just give him the bulk of my metal working tools. I just go across town to use my metal working tools now, but can now use his tools now too.
