Hi Adam, Hi all,
Never never never use vegetable oil in your diamond saw. It works
like varnish. I made that mistake one time and one time only several
years ago when I ran out of oil & wanted to do some quick sawing
anyway. So mixed up a witches brew straight out of the kitchen: 50%
soya oil, 50% olive oil. Very healthy and low cholesterol.
After throwing up a pea soup fog inside the saw case it then
proceeded to dry in there - polmerizing and hardening into the most
astonishingly tenacious but sticky interior glaze which coated
everything and took hours of scraping to remove. No solvent that I
had would touch it. Not kerosene, not alcohol, not acetone. Bad
stuff. Save it for the frying pan.
