We are using Barber Colman 16-16 'verticycle' gear hobbers (made in 1981) to cut worm gears. Currently we are using Castrol ILOCut 534 cutting oil.
Does anyone know if it is possible to use water-soluble cutting oil, or any synthetic oil, to replace the ILOCut 534?
We would like to (a) transfer heat more quickly from the workpiece; (b) reduce cost.
I would welcome your advice. Thanks!
