Re: Re: Re: Oil Smell in Cloths

For a small 6 inch trim saw you can use water with an additive to prevent rust or you can use mineral oil. Never use antifreeze unless it is the low toxic variety used in trailer toilets. A quarter inch coverage on a six inch blade is too much in my opinion.
You could try a splash shield that is adjustable in height to reduce splash. I have used a ten inch saw with oil as a trim saw for many years with little splash or problems. A ten inch blade works well, while my six inch blade trim saw does seem to throw a lot more oil. I suspect it has to do with the physical dimensions involved. I would recommend you use mineral oil or additive if your problems continue.
