If you use a brush turtle to trim the brush a little to pre-break them in, do you use any lube or cutting oil on the brush or cutting stone? Thanks, Dave....

No.

 

The brush radius tool should have enough abrasive action, (and the brush, somewhat soft) no lubricant should ever be needed.

Like Mike says, I've always cut them dry. But the more I think about it, a drop of water might be okay too. Not so much as to enhance the cutting action, but to float off the cut brush particles so they don't  load up the diamonds  or HSS burrs of a cutter. Diamond plates used to sharpen knives, chisels, & plane irons often use water for this purpose.
