Came across this - unusual mill Y slide swarf protection!
Note the neat paintbrush swarf sweeper.
Its a LinuxCNC video - limited interest, but the first 30 seconds of interest - the rest makes one ill.

An effective solution and probably easy to clean.
I have been trying to think of a way to add the type of cover they have on large CNC machines. The multi-sheet telescopic type that remain flat.
As a temporary measure I have installed a high temperature barbecue grill mat (from amazon) cut to size. It does need to be managed occasionally but it keeps the swarf off the ways.

For ideas on how it is done in industry have a look hereSlide way covers. Use to use these a lot.

I love the brush, very imaginative.
I have also used Breakbane many years ago. Not cheap in the day but a professional product made for work.
