[amazon template=wishlist&asin=B01C74DL98]
I have been doing more aluminium machining lately on my 3040 CNC (see more here: ) and want to add a cheap mister however wanted to make removable to used my dust collector with doing wood or plastic so I designed this collar which cinch and mounts with M5 Bolts as to mount the Mister (see more here: ) you will need some 25mm long M5 (see more here: ) bolts and to cinch the collar you will need another two M5 bolts around 12mm long (see more here: ).

The compressor we are using is the: which is a steel dual tank, however if your seeking a more cost effective solution, their single tank version (see more here: ) can work in lower cycle time applications.
