Cutting Fluids
Fluids play a minor role in rotary broaching. Any type of water or oil based fluid is acceptable. The chip is a flowing type and the amount of heat generated is very minimal.

When internal rotary broaching in blind holes, fluids should be applied on the broaching tool tip prior to contacting workpiece and not inside of workpiece pilot hole. Trapped fluid sometimes is unable to escape causing inability to broach to full depth.

For external rotary broaching, fluids may be applied prior to or continuously on workpiece diameter.

Lubrication of Holder
Lubricate every 2 hours of continued usage. After lubrication, hand rotate spindle to relieve pressure caused by greasing. Slater Tools offers and recommends Mobiltemp SHC 32©. This is a clay thickened, synthetic, dark red grease. Do not use grease containing graphite. (Mobiltemp SHC 32 is available from Slater Tools)
