I'm guessing the,ATF also slows down the evaporation...
Do you backwoods Billys use a real parts washer.???
Or use a mortar mixer to slosh the parts and fluid around..????

Slapper...... We found parts get jammed between the paddles and damaged, Sooo...... We now use the concrete mixer, Much easier on all parts !!!



















We've got two of this style;



And one of this style;




Try filling all of these up with some high dollar fancy pants cleaning solvent !!!

I can tell you guys never used a partswasher service company....
They come in every 12 weeks to service and topoff and charge bout $125...whether it needs it or not..
If they have to change the fluid...its bout $225...really...
The whole deal is about hazardous waste... who owns it..and how it is disposed of..
There are some crazy fines if the EPA ever walks into your business and you don't have documentation...
For instance...if your used oil drum or used fuel drum is not properly labeled with the sticker from the recycling company you use..
Its a $1200 fine on each drum....seen it happen...its not good to piss those people off...

You havin a problem with the heat or the guy you're workin fer.?
You're one of the few people I know that would prolly make more money if you wernt tied down to one job.
You can always drag that jumbo smoker up to the panhandle and ply your wares round here.

joe billy.....It gonna take more than moral support to get me to relocate to the panhandle..
Start with about 50K..full benefits..moving expenses..and a years supply of alpo for my kids..
Then..theres the downtime of tooling around with my new smoker in RestroRob ville..
shouldnt take more than a month...
Save me some of those shark steaks..
