Using a Domino cutter in siberian larch produces this....

After cutting just 6 slots.... Not good. Dust extraction on full thrutch .

 

Is there anything I can coat the drill with to reduce the amount of cleaning I will need to do?

We'll have a competition ... you have been warned.

 

It could be Boaty McBoatface. I'd go for King Canute (newt, innit?).

Yep.

Made 5 meters worth so far today. Interesting variation in the slots created: some dry and clean as a whistle,  others apparently 'wet' and jammed with sawdust. 

So I just have to bloward.....

Both.

External gets a coat or three of Zinser RAL7016 , internal gets fabbed up and then run through the thicknesser .

That Zinser paint is fabulous; fab price too mind...
