I have 5 gal buckets of it for $60 if you want to come pick it up.
I have never tried to ship a bucket of oil before so I don't know how much that would cost.

You can buy food grade mineral oil at walmart or target in Alaska for $1.62/16oz. Thats just under $13 per gallon. That is the best I could find up here. Filter old oil through brown paper bag in 5 gal bucket, you can recover 60% or better.

about $30 a five gallon bucket.

ISO 30 is viscosity 32 Centistokes at 40 deg-C, which is over 160 SUS. I use SUS 70 lite mineral oil, which is about 12 Centistokes.

I think that means your oil is 2-3 times thicker than mine.

Hey Daniel, whats a centistoke?
All's I know, is the ISO 32 is cheap and works. Harder to clean of the slabs in the winter, and that is why God made dishwashers!

I wonder if the thicker oil penetrates the slab less and is easier to clean off. i don't know about dishwasher, but I believe in Dawn

I wasn't going to go this direction since the thread was more on what oil to buy  but , if you want to clean the oil off fast and deep use this--- disclaimer wear a mask do it out side and wear rubber gloves-- I don't do any of that but my brain has been dead since the sixty's which I don't remember. So what is it it's carb/chock cleaner. help

Speaking of Almag and its supposedly bad smell.  I was at my friends shop and he was slabbing, as he has been doing for the years I have known him....anyway I asked what he used oil wise and he said Almag.....could have knocked me over with a feather.  I have never ever smelled anything in his shop.  Just sayin....

I ended up just buying mineral oil from Tractor Supply and a local feed store. $17 per gallon at Tractor Supply but for the amount I cut it should last me a good long while.

The local rock store sells Almag but they said it does have a smell to it. Not worth the risk to me being next to our cars.

I rub the Dawn all over the slab and then rinse.

That's what I'm doing too.
Soaking them for a day, or so...then rinsing.
