Coolant Impingement at Interface of Cutting Edge and Material Being
Removed

      This invention provides a method of providing coolant 10 to
cutting tools, such as drill 12, when doing precision machining.

      The solution provides a constant supply of coolant at the point
of material chip/cutter interface.  This is accomplished by using a
coolant manifold 14 built internally to the bushing guide plates 18.

      The coolant under pressure impinges upon the ends of cutting
tools, such as mills, drills, bores and reamers. The coolant
impinging upon the cutter/material interface lubricates and cools the
tools providing long tool life and ability to hold location and size.

      Graphic schematics shown in the figure point out the area of
coolant impingement, the coolant input 20, the coolant exit 22 and
method of delivery.
