Coolants - Which is the best coolant for a typical cutter?

You know, for something whose operating pressure ranges from ~400 psi to more than 1000 psi?

I suggest that you go for any water-based/water soluble coolant and you'll be good to go.

I read somewhere that some coolants have to be changed when they have a bad smell. So, yeah never buy a bad-smelling coolant.

Good one Kilobti. After all we all know that water does not smell.

Plain water maybe odorless but that does not apply when it comes to cleaning up oily machines. The oil could trap living organisms making your system to produce one hell of a horrible stench.

Today we have air coolants i.e. they blow cool air to take away the heat. Unfortunately i have no idea how much they cost.
