Default Attention Ron

Took off lid to repurpose this oil pail today, and was surprised to see all the black sediments on the bottom.

Supposed to be good oil, that was called for in my lathe at work. Ron helped me out last year and made me aware of how bad it would have been if I had just used the normal Shop supplied Hydraulic oil that has Antiwear additives in it.

But this does not seem normal.
Guess you are supposed to shake the container before pouring?

Somebody dumped some crap in that pail, that would not come out of a Shell product.

Maybe you could just filter it into a clean pail.

We have seen dirty silt in more than this one bucket. I did not open this pail myself, so I can’t guarantee that someone put something in it, but I was wondering if the “special additives” could separate over time.

Guess I will pay attention when I get to the bottom of the next bucket. Guess that’s why a lot cheaper oils come in black containers?

No. Somebody dumped shit in your bucket. Beat them about the head and
shoulders. Hydraulic add packages are amber in color not fucking black. Beat
the asshole fucking with your oil.

Yup, a retired friend of mine wanting to help, gave me a full bucket
of "used hydraulic oil" so maybe like I could use it "It's real clean like".

It went onto the brush pile.
