-PVC Hose 6mm ID $2
-Neodimium magnets $8
Items to automate operation
- Air Regulator $16
- Solenoid Valve $30
Fairly easy, just add oil instead of paint and epoxy the neodimium magnets to the airbrush, the other magnet fits next to where you need the airbrush securing. This allows me to place the coolant exactly where I want it quickly.
Im sure you will wish to setup your coolant system to suit your equipment.
I got board of switching the unit on and off so I glued the airbrushes trigger down and fitted a solenoid valve which ran off the motors power. Now when I turn the lathe on or off the coolant starts & stops automatically, just like pro cnc machines.
Hope you like it :)
