pointed downwards (page 17).
I would still be worried about getting metal particles inside it.
I was thinking maybe stuff some non-lint fabric up in there,
to block the tube up, and then blow it out with a blast of dry air
from the other end.?.
I have two pipe cutters that I use for cutting copper water tubing.
I think the smaller one might be good for this job. It's pretty sharp.
At work, I use a super fine jeweler's saw and a fixture to cut off
0.141 OD hardline coax cable. That will be my backup method,
if my small tube cutter fails to perform. I can make fixture blocks on my Chinese mill.
The manual says "the ideal (or target) vacuum condition is around 10 mmHg abs."
(What does that equal to? Is that 10 Torr? (10 Torr=10,000 Micron?)..
That MasterCool pump does 75 Microns. Will that do the job??
