Hey everyone I hope I am not posting this in the wrong spot. If so can the mod's delete it or repost in the right spot for me. I was not sure if it was really a tech article or just me babbling. Here is a link for the pictures.. http://gallery.12thfloor.com/gallery2/v/users/Jeepfreak/Parts+Washer/ I'll start off with this ting is OLDDDDDDD well to me anyway. Its at least 25 yrs old. It used to be an old Safety Kleen unit. My dad and I got i back in the late 80's and cleaned it up and repainted it RED/BLACK. Well the pump finally crapped out a while back and I never replaced it. Since I have been cleaning up te garage in the anticipated move to SAN ANTONIO, Texas, I decided to rebuild it before I got moved up there. I looked around the net, and here locally and finally found that Granger had a really nice pump, that was similar to the original. I guess after 25 yrs it was ok for the old pump to die. It really wasnt dead, but it was a sealed unit and the wires were so hard and dried out they finally broke off. I spent about $125 on the pump, new hose and clamps. I had another switch(it will bereplaced with a sealed one once I move) New wire and a Plug. I thought about giving it up and jus tbuying a new one, but after having heart failure on the price of a similar Parts Washer I decided my $125 to rebuild this one would be worth the effort. Now for the real question I will more than likely run VARSOL in it. What do you guys run in yours? I thought about the aqueous soulutions, but I really dont want the nasty oily film left behind. I normally use gloves when using the washer so cancer from the solvents and stuff like that do not worry me. I was looking at some of the ZEP products, and on monday will try and find a local dealer with pricing. I can get a 55 gallon drum of varsol for $153 here locally. What are you guys paying for your parts washer solvents? Again I hope this is posted in the right spot.
