I'm definitely no expert on the stuff, but in general, it doesn't machine too bad. My problem is I was trying to use a face miller that is borderline too big for the machine. Someone recommended that I remove half the inserts. I wish I would have thought about that before I finished it.

As far as fluid, I did find it cut much better dry. I'm finding the more people I talk to, unless they are doing HSM, they cut almost everything dry, with the exception of aluminum on the finish cuts. Copper also benefits from cutting fluid.
