I read your issue with interest. I assist machine shops with similar problems in diverse situations. I represent a seed based lubricant/cutting oil that contains molybdenum in suspension. We provide our clients with heat and friction reduction that allows for longer tool life at higher feeds and speeds with better finishes. Our product is also environmentally friendly.
If I can assist, please drop me a note.
