Re: Cleaning a Lortone LS-14 Slab Saw

There is no reason to clean a slab saw. Just take a little bit or a lot of the sludge out every once in awhile and keep going. You can do this with a coffee filter inside the saw. If you must clean it out get a Sears shop vac(others might shoot oil out the exhaust) and suck it out with that and set the sludge in a paper garbage bag and a strainer for a week to get back the oil.

The shop vac must be a dedicated shop vac(do not use it to clean your Jag afterwards) and the hose may eventually break down. I can clean a saw in 5 minutes with one. I talked the Seattle Boeing Club into this method and they never went back to the OLD way. We sucked out saws that had 20 gallons of oil and sludge in minutes.

*If anyone wants to make your Loritone 12 inch saw a 14 inch saw add 4 wooden blocks to each corner.

Blessings......have fun.
