In that pic I was still waiting to get the actual coolant, so it was just water (but that was only for a very brief time). Now I'm using KoolMist 77 as the coolant. It's mixes with water at something like a 1:32 ratio (one part koolmist, 32 parts water). Supposedly it will not go rancid and shouldn't lead to rust on the equipment. I've been using it for about 2 months now and no signs of any rust. I've also only used about 6oz total of the mixed coolant (the reservoir is down about an inch and a half). It's hard to imagine it given the temps right now, but come winter I plan on adding a shot of antifreeze to the mix to (hopefully) keep if from freezing up in the unheated shop.That's a neat mister you made but I don't quite understand: is that water mist? Doesn't that cause major rust issues?
Inquiring minds want to know..
