Anyone else losing coolant? Here's why!
« on: February 04, 2022, 09:09:59 PM »

For a long time now I've been topping up the coolant tank without knowing where it was going. Today I decided to rip out the shelving on the RHS and I found the leak. When the lathe was originally fitted to the cabinet a lip was created where the cabinet was not quite big enough to accomodate the lathe. The coolant was escaping through this and running down the side where I couldn't see it.



I promptly made a stainless steel 'chute' and glued it in place. No more leaks!
