       I just use water... but I built some shields to help keep me dry. My health is bad enough so having to wonder about what I am breathing or putting my hands in is out of the question now. Sooo, think about this. I purchased a Lortone basic saw and added the motor and put it on a simple base. If you buy a TS-10 which is the 10 inch trim saw it is $370 plus shipping. So call it $400. If you use it for 40 months with water and had to replace it that is 10 dollars a month. Probably less than many people spend on oils and such. I have used my Lortone 6 inch trim saw with plain water for over 5 years and still runs like a top. So I am under 5 dollars a month and no worries. I do clean and dry it each day after I am done.
    I will try and add some pictures of the shields I made later today.
