I have been using a shop vac during the cutting. I stick my head in the side window and vac up the dust as it is cutting. If I end up making a production run of composite scales I'll have to figure out how to get a vac hose in place and leave it on during the run. After doing this a few times, I think a decent CNC router with tool changer and dust control would be a better way to go for scales in any kind of volume.
BossDog you’ve probably thought of this already but when I worked in a machine that cut lots of carbon fiber, they had it set up with a really powerful shopvac that sucked most of everything out and they just ran it dry with no coolant.
