dw, i know what you mean i've had my share of 'oil-in-the-face' incidents.... always makes me wonder what good it does if it all flies off anyway....

but, all the resources out there recommend using cutting oil.... what do they know that i/we don't? i'm pretty sure they've been cutting comms long before i did, and they must know something i don't....

lately, i've been using a sharpie marker to act as a cut indicator and lubricant..... getting good cuts using it....

i never tried cutting without some sort of lubricant, be it oil or marker.... might try it this afternoon....

thanks everyone, a very helpful thread....

Oh No, My diamond bit is starting to cut really bad unless I use a marker. It leaves little fragments/chunks on the com no matter how slow I go. Also, when I cut from right to left and then back it seems to just barely skim the com on the way back. It never used to do this, what do I do???

spongebob it sounds like either your bit height is too low or your feed screw is moving while you are cutting or you have a chiped bit
