Friction from metal blades cutting metal causes heat. It can cause enough heat that the tool bit and waste chips can weld to the surface of the workpiece, damaging the surface. Heat can also cause the workpiece to bow slightly, throwing off precision cuts, as well as shorten the life of the cutting tools. Waste from cuts, especially in industrial shops, can build up and get in the way of the machining process. Reid offers industrial quality adjustable hoses and everything to connect them, including valves, reducers, fittings, nozzles, shields and end caps. Vacuum lines can also be added to the workstation to remove chips as well as excess lubricant or coolant from the working surfaces.
