    To my knowledge most any spindle ATC's out there are only going to consume sub 2-5CFM's at whatever pressure setting they are at. They use little to no air whatsoever but my HSD bleeds air around the...

    You and me both. You would go broke stopping/slowing production to say "wait, set that board aside" lol. The last job before this one was similar. A lot of really juicy boards that I would have...
