Re: recirculating pump for slab saw

Hi Tony

I have built several saws in the past. The first one was a 10 inch that looked like a miter saw or the blade came down on top of the rock. The miter saw style saw used a external reservoir and pump system. The problem with the external reservoir and pump system is the oil mist. For me I had to have the saw in my basement I ended up with a oil film over every thing, if you cut for 5 or 6 hours you could lose a gallon of oil.

The second saw I built was a saw that could handle up to a 24 inch blade. I built this saw inside 2 sheet metal boxes. The upper box or the lid sits inside the lower box on a lip running around top of the lower box. Any oil mist that collects on the upper box runs back into the lower box presto no oil lose.

A couple of other tips when you have the lower bow made have them put a �V� along length bottom of the lower box, that way you fill the �V� with oil not the whole lower box.

Second tip I was looking around for a low geared electric motor to turn my screw feed for the rock vise. A good inexpensive fix for that is a rotisserie motor for a charcoal grill (around $25. at Home Depot).

Hope some of this helps if you have anymore questions give me a holler.

Bob
