Anyone have a low budget method to get it out and back in the coolant tanks where it is useful? I know the guy who picks the barrels up is going to start griping about them being wet and the bottom of the drums being full of coolant. How much does a pucker cost? This job is going to make about 10 55 gallon drums this month and about 5 a month for the rest of the year.
    We've used many methods described here, but finally got tired of those more time consuming ways. Our machine shop now uses camel carts to recycle our coolant. They're a company out of melbourne, fl. Here's a link: camel-cart.com. Hope this helps anyone reading this thread.

    Holy crap - that was a long time ago. Ran those parts off and on for almost 8 years and they were good to me. The last of the old Okuma Cadets left last year and was replaced by a little Brother S500. Added a couple of M560s over the last five years and still happy with Okuma. We make 3 or 4 dumpster loads of chips a month so I can't imagine trying to deal with 55 gallon drums again. Time goes on.

    Stop lying, you are affiliated with their junk product. Your 3 posts are about their piece of crap carts.
