Re: How to Salvage Cutting Oil?
John this has been discussed many times in the past. Use 2 layers of brown paper bag (grocery store bags). Not sure where I first heard about this method, but again it has been discussed here before. It will take some time for the oil to seperate so be patient. It is a good practice to have enough oil on hand to continue running your saw while the filtration process is going on. Depending on the amount of oil you are filtering it could take a few days to over a month or more. I have had spectacular results doing it this way. The oil comes out looking like new. And if you really want to squeeze the last remaining oil out of the sludge try using dish soap and boiling water in your bucket and stir vigorously. The remaining oil will seperate to the top of the bucket for removal and discard the sludge responsibly. Good luck.
