    3/4 of a cubic inch a minute, that should be less than 1/10th of a HP cut.

    Depending on what you really need.

    I use straight shank ER's in set screw holders more often than I should admit.

    Velocite #6. The stuff isn't cheap. Though at $100 a pail, that is $20 a gallon, which
    is $5 a quart, which is pretty close to what motor oil cost now.

    It would be way cheaper if you could mix...

    If its running light oil, and its not leaking, I wouldn't mess with it.
