    Window cleaning

    What are y'all using to clean the lathe or mill glass windows? I tiered Windex but it didn't work really well. Its coolant splash predominantly.

    Scrub it down with coolant then Windex it. The coolant will cut right the dried on stuff.

    That’s the way I clean mine.
    You can buy GOOD PARTS or you can buy CHEAP PARTS, but you can't buy GOOD CHEAP PARTS.

    Some coolants actually attack the plastic (I sure hope it's not really glass!). If that's the problem you're having, then you CAN'T clean it, you have to replace it (and preferably find a better coolant).

    Its the coolant that Torch supplies, so likely not going to attack the window?

    Thanks for all responses
