Cold temperature grinding fluid


Jan 13, 2019
Wondering if there is a grinding fluid that is suitable to use in below freezing temperatures?
I have a crankshaft grinder as well as a large surface grinder that I would like to store in an unheated shop. The plan is to turn on the heat on the days when I will be using this equipment. There may be long stretches when the machines are not being used. It would be a big job to drain the grinding fluid.

Gotta be careful doing that. Things move around a lot until temp stabilizes and also if you bring the temp up from very cold too quick you will probably get a lot of condensation - not good for precision equipment.
