I ran coolant for first time on my X5. It worked out great but now the machine table is full of liquid. The pan under machine is fine as it drained back to pump house, its the machine table vice is mounted to that is flooded full. How do I get it emptied and clean?
Put some silicon grease at the bottom of the vise so that it will diminish the oxidation. Dry it out as best as you can once the session is over. You can lube it up a bit after that. Try to Avoid coolant reaching underneath the table in the ways/guides -- you may get creative here. If you really want to "clean" the coolant, at least on mine, it involves a fair amount of disassembly. I run mine on cutting oil (a very unpopular choice) because I'm lazy, and OCC, like that
Air blast is generally frown upon as it will push the bad stuff further in.
