My new to me Jet 1340 lathe came with some rather nasty looking oil. UPS delivered two gallons of Mobile Heavy/Medium ISO 68 circulating oil today (Zoro Tools, $31 per gallon with free shipping over $50). I have figured how to get the new oil in but I am not up to speed on getting the old oil out. Looks like you remove a small bolt or plug on the end of the lathe. Looks like a mega mess waiting to happen. Does anybody know of a trick or technique for getting the old lube out and in a bucket without getting most of it on the floor?
