Hello I'm new to the site and have a question about getting a cnc router
to cool with water. i'm a cabinet builder with some interest in using older
cnc for cutting solid surface wet. ive searched for threads in this forum
and seems it can be done but almost no one recommends it just want to know if anyone has seen it done and possible information.

thanks mike

WHy would you want to cut it wet? It cuts just fine dry.

keeping the dust down and possibly cutting 2cm zodiaq

A simple dust collector will keep the dust down. Can you cut Zodiaq with a router?

I cut Corian with Paint thinner; it stops the dust; dries up easy and then just vac it off
