I was lucky when we shut down a facility they didn't want to transport the refrigeration or vacuum oils to the new facility. They also didn't want to pay to dispose of them in the waste stream, so I agreed to "dispose" of it for free. I got about 100 gallons. They are a highly refined, costly, 15 wt oil and it works great for me. No smell and I wipe the slab off after it is cut and put it into cat litter for a day or so. No oily residue is left on the slab. The oil filters very effectively with the double paper bag method.

great information guys. after my second five gallons of cutting oil, I was hoping there was something less expensive. Also getting the impression that most of you wash your slabs with dawn (soap) and water. Thanks for the information.
