Ot Coolant pump

I am looking for a coolant pump for my band saw, found a cheapie, from wholesale tools, but as usual they are back ordered. I know about the little giant pumps, but they are kind pricey. Anyone have any recomendations? I am tired of using Jim's big red bottle.

Re: Ot Coolant pump

Have you looked at MSC and Grainger? MSC has pumps from $62 on up, and complete Little Giants from $79 up.

Re: Ot Coolant pump

I looked at Msc, only thing is since i found that 23.00 import at wholesale tools I can't help but think that I could find one with another comany that was not back ordered. It was a direct replacement.

Re: Ot Coolant pump

hmm there should be tons of pumps out there... but I couldn't find any on the internet. All the junk comes with a pump "Made in China" these days I guess.

There should be some in catalogs... I don't get those anymore. Completely out of touch with machine tools... kewl [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Ot Coolant pump

I have a temp set up until the backordered pump is availble. It involves a bucket on top of a turned over trash can and a small pump pushing the coolant. i have to dip out the coolant to refill the bucket, but I sawed for about 6 hrs today without a problem other than a bent piece of stock. You would think as high as steel is right now they could at least make it straight.

Re: Ot Coolant pump

Shortly after your last post I got a Koolmist system from MSC for about $70. I was skeptical about it working on the saw, but I've been completely satisfied with it. It clears the chips from the kerf even without a flood of liquid. I've made a bunch of 6" cuts with a 16 tooth blade with no galling. The nice thing about it is that it uses very little coolant, so there isn't the mess you get with a flood system. Since late August I've used about a quart of coolant/water mix. The bad part is that it makes the compressor run, and that's a noisy old whomper.

Also in its favor is that it works well on the milling machine or lathe without getting water on the machines. I hate to get them wet. [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]
