Slab Saw Coolant

Slab Saw Coolant - When cleaning your slab saw you can put the mud from the bottom of the tank in a paper bag from the grocery store. Place the bag on a screen over a bucket or tub. The oil will seep through the bag and collect in the tub ready for reuse. After a few weeks the mud in the bag will be dried up and can be disposed of, bag and all. Some large saws have room at the rear where you can hang a muslin bag to put the sludge in. The oil then seeps through the bag and falls directly into the tank. The muslin bag will empty easily once the mud is dry and can then be reused many times.
