Trick of the week

Then you know its gonna tip over and spill at least once or twice a day so heres what I came up with ...get some foam from old couch or chair cut a piece to fit tightly inside the can then fill the can with your oil..it will never spill again..

Great tip, you could also glue a magnet to the bottom side so it would require xtra force to knock over.

I use old bacon grease as cutting oil, it stays relatively hard and doesn't run. Cheap and smells good too.

I've improved the design of my hi tec cutting oil can , LOL......I bought one of those small HF magnetic bolt trays and set the can in it...the can sticks to the tray and the tray sticks to any metal surface so it can be inches away from where your working ,and it has a second advantage, you now have a special place to keep the drill bits and chuck key....much better than just a can .....
