Hi guys, trying to assembly my water cooled spindle and I am wondering what capacity bucket you are all using for your machines.
I don't run mine all day but I am looking to run jobs that may run 1-2 hours at a time. (3d?)

I have a 2.2KW (running on 110V VFD).
Also I plan on running distilled water and I am wondering if I should add some automotive coolant to the mix? I don't run the machine very often. It may set inactive for 2 week here at there and I don't have to keep the water in the bottle of spindle...

Would a 3 gal. container be enough?
just like a car, I am guessing there is a temperature range I do not want to exceed in the spindle via the water.

I appreciate the input.
