 English term or phrase: downward drop cutting tools "Cutting fluid pressure and volume define the [cutting fluid] supply and are shown in nominal values. These values are not strict overall and may need adjustment depending on machining conditions. Recommended minimum pressures are indicated in diagrams relative to drill diameter for stationary and rotating drills. It should also be noted that there is always a drop in pressure along pipes between pump and drill and that the minimum pressure is achieved at the drill point. A simple minimum pressure indicator is for a horisontal drill to have a stream of cutting fl uid coming out of the drill supply- holes without any ***downward drop*** for at least 30 cm. question: ...(apart from the fact that I thought any drop should be downward at least on earth) does the text refer to a "pressure drop"?

 English translation:physical drop Explanation:My take on this is that the minimum pressure required at the point where the fluid stream comes out of the supply holes, i.e. out of the supply pipe/duct and into free space, is high enough for the stream to remain horizontal over a linear distance of at least 30 cm before assuming a downward trajectory.

is what I think this must be - it certainly doesn't look like pressure.

Explanation:
Sounds like a really simple 'rule of thumb' method.
