As I said, I’m really astonished at the difference this lubricator had made in a number of areas – cost of tools, working area mess, and job quality.
I am pleased I received your e-mail announcing your new website, as it reminds me that I’m well overdue with my ‘thank you’ message.
You helped me decide the Coolubricator JR, using Coolube 2210 fluid, would be best for my application and I’ve now had around 12 months experience with this unit. I’m actually quite astonished at how well this combination works.
I fabricate vehicle-specific number plate brackets from aluminium sheet which I machine to order using a CNC router. Before installing the Unist Coolubricator I used flood cooling/lubricating and had experimented with a variety of coolants. All were messy and, in hindsight, not particularly effective. I used an average of two router bits per month and wasted a lot of time cleaning up the edges of the router cuts.
Over the past 12 months I haven’t needed to replace a single router bit – except for two damaged due to operator error! I’m still running on bits I had in stock when I bought the Unist. I save a lot of time with de-burring as I am no longer cutting with dull tools.
My machine only runs between 10 and 20 hours a week (so it’s not exactly a heavy-duty application) but I’ve used less than 50% of the initial filling of the 500cc reservoir! As I said, I am really astonished at the difference this lubricator had made in a number of areas – cost of tools, working area mess and job quality.
I was very appreciative of the fact that you were prepared to spend time on the phone with me, helping me work out what would suit me best – especially as it wasn’t exactly one of your biggest sales.
