What fluid do you guys use when drilling through steel like 154cm?
I usually use Rapid Tap just because its easy to find and its what i had on hand. Seems to do the trick.
Rapid tap is good stuff!
Rapid Tap is a very good product... Another product that is very comparable to Rapid Tap is Tapfree Excel. One nice thing with the Tapfree Excel, as well as performing just as good as Rapid Tap, is that it can be shipped along with your sanding belts! Here is the link: http://iws.onlinesupply.ca/index.php?route=product/search&filter_name=tapfree excel
There is another product that is in more of a "petroleum jelly" form... it is called Jokisch. The nice thing with this product is you can dip your tap or drill in the product... which then sticks to it... and when you start drilling or tapping, it liquefies with the heat. This is very popular with some of my marine customers who are working in stainless steel.
ECONO 897 ALLROUND Part # JK897-8.8
I'll add another vote for Rapid Tap.
