    If you go to a medical supply house you can get an IV drip, with a drip valve.
    An alternative would be aquarium hose with a regulator.

        I guess it would depend on the saw Sharon.
        The hole in the middle of my Delta table is away from the electrial system.
        You don't use a whol elot of water, just enough to cool the blade.
        If they get too hot the glue will melt and the diamond dust will fall off.
        Here is a supplier link.
        They are not the cheapest blades on the market, but they do intrigue me.

          I thought this may answer your questions about cutting glass.

              A friend reminded me that Gail Jennings of Quail Hollow Wood Arts www.quailhollow-woodarts did a stained glass fairy for SSW in Summer 2004...he built his own drip system to keep the blade cool..
              I'm sure Gail would be glad to help out as well!

                I don't think I would do it. I picture water droplets going everywhere and causing havok in a short period of time.

                There are glass tools to cut glass- including power saws -that are not that expensive

                    I'm sure you could "make up something" I know that HAWK/RBI has a drip tank designed for their saws.

                      I upgraded back in early winter. I got one with both a solid state as well as hard drive. I couldn't move over my Office 2010 because I'd bought it as a download (which was still functioning just fine for what I used it for) and I never switched it to subscription because of the cost. The old download...

                      I just picked up a couple of new heavy handled bowl gauges. 1/2 inch and 3/8 inch from two friends that have tool supply businesses.
                      Our next Scroll saw club challenge will be segmented scroll saw bowls. I don't sand my bowls, too time consuming, so I will be turning them after glue up.

                      One problem with upgrading was that many of the programs I use are now subscription based. That really frosts my butt I finally accepted the fact that I normally renew my software frequently anyway the cost difference is negligible.

                      I did not go with a solid state drive, probably...

                      Actually, I think mine is more than 10 years old. And what brand would that be? Remember who you’re talking to here about computers.

                      If you buy a new computer you want to get a solid state hard drive. No moving parts to break or wear out....
