coolant suppliers

I am looking for sources for diamond saw coolants. It seems that saw sales people don't usually handle the coolants. Any guidance would be most helpful. Most likely in one gallon bottles and not the CRL stuff.

I am using mineral oil from Tractor Supply Co. It is sold in gallon bottles as horse laxative. Ooh, new brand, cheaper at $14.99 a gallon. I use it in my 24" lapidary saw.

I too like the Mineral oil, Edcot is the brand name of ours. No rust, good for the blades and easy to recycle.

Is the mineral oil used straight, or do you cut it with something else?

Well, what else is in the stuff besides mineral oil?

Does that then make the workpiece far slippier to hold?

There’s a sink next to the saw, easy to clean. You’ll have to clean it no matter what. We recycle both the oil in the saw and the water in the sink.

The felker sort of splashes stuff around. Most of the time I have a 14 inch blade on it, sometimes a 20 and sometimes a tiny 7 . Spray gets on the floor and this sounds sort of slippery. Rinse sinks are sort of an issue in this shop.

When I worked as a glazier we used this stuff when drilling holes in glass:

It also comes in an 8 ounce bottle.
