located at the tailstock end of the lathe is an
access cover where the pump and a cutting fluid
tank are located. A screen in the chip drawer pre-
vents large metal chips from entering the tank. the
small metal chips wash down into the cutting fluid
tank that is split into two chambers by means of
a baffle. the first chamber allows the small chips
to settle to the bottom, and lets clean cutting fluid
overflow the baffle and enter the second chamber
where the pump draws clean fluid. inspect the
tank often to verify that metal chips are not over-
flowing into the second chamber where, if left for
a period of time, pump damage may occur.
Tip: For speedy chip removal from the tank, a
metal catch basket with handles can be made to
lift out the metal chip buildup in the first chamber.
