Re: recirculating pump for slab saw

Tony,
I think I get the idea. I also understand your wanting a resolve to this concern. I'm sure there are many ways to achieve the end result you are looking for. I think I will sit back a bit on this and give others to chime in. Give me some time to think about it. Quickly off the top of my head though I would consider a sump in the saw basin itself to pump the used oil out to an external reservoir, thereby avoiding any drilling into the basin housing itself at a low enough location for a drain. If you have to drill a hole in the basin housing it would be at a much higher location to allow the sump line to exit the basin, this I believe would certainly reduce the loss of any oil from the basin itself. From there you can then use another sump in the external reservoir to pump the oil back to the chosen location for proper distribution to the saw blade/rock location for proper lubrication. I have never attempted a task of this nature nor did I ever have a need to do so. Let's just wait and see what others may have to say about this. Before you decide what to do, give it time, consider all your options, wait for other ideas that may come to you whether here or on your own. I believe in the end you will have the design you are looking for.
