If they ship free for that amount that might be the best rate I've seen yet considering the weight of the gallons and size. I'm going to need to fill a 24" here soon

They do ship free for over $50.  So order 4 @ $12 ea. and 1 at $13 and you get 5 for $61 or $12.20 per gallon

I collect and cut only sludge free rocks! LOL As mentioned above check the oil after it sits awhile. I use mineral oil as long as I can see clear layer on top after settling I keep using.

I think what you need is a way to filter your oil and reuse it.  It can be as simple as a paper grocery bag sitting in a collander inside of a 5-gallon bucket.  The easy to recover oil seeps through the bag in a couple of days.  if you leave it alone for a month or so you can get more oil out of the sludge.  Some people press the sludge to get as much oil out as possible.

There are no dumb questions.  Just because you don't know the answer, doesn't make the question dumb.  If you knew the answer and then asked the question, then that would be dumb, right?   :LOLOL:

Changing oil in a 10 inch saw doesn't happen that often.  Like they are telling you, let the bottom of the reservoir get sludgy.  I do lose quite a bit of oil from misting and spray, which means I add oil as needed.  I feel the most important thing is to have enough oil in there to keep the blade and stone cool.  When the oil gets bad you will notice more debris and or sludge on the table top.  Cleaner oil and it flows back into the reservoir.

Thanks a lot Grayco!!   Glad to know where I will be buying oil next without the shipping charge. It's almost unbelievable considering the weight in oil I will need for all of the saws....  I'll take it!!   :glasses9:        I'm going to try the paper bag reclaim method this time as all I had ever done was let it settle in buckets and then siphon off the top.   Cleaning 18"+ saws etc , sometimes it's like can we get Mike in here from the tv show Dirty Jobs.  :coffee1:

The paper bag technique only works if your oil is still in liquid form.  :angel9: :icon_thumright:

About that misting... I put one bottle of Bardahl No Smoke in the 2 gallons of oil in my 12 inch and the misting was reduced by 90%
