As stated, if your getting diesel all over your clothes your using/wasting too much use a wick and just apply a sheen of diesel no drips. I quit using diesel on my bands too expensive now I use used ATF, wick applied. Worked with diesel all my life don't find it offensive unless I'am soaked in it. Frank C.

I bought one of those bulb primers from WM for my diesel fuel line, this eliminated most of my diesel down the shirt collar problem.  ::) ::)

Alas Poston those days of my youth are but a faint memory. I changed the oil in my tranny and saved it looked nice and clean. Take a few nice wood blocks to a transmission shop and you should come out with years supply of nice ATF. If its a nice red color fine if brown leave it. Frank C.

I always wore coveralls when I worked as a DIESEL FITTER.

Post, Is that the job you had at the women's clothing factory? ;D

I was once the guy who followed the guy with the chainsaw cutting up pulp wood.  I was the "pilot".  He cut it up and I pile it.  :D

When I was working at the sawmill courting the sawyers daughter...Mama made me a quilted comforter for my bachelor bed out of jeans pockets. One of the patches was from the old boys work pants...and smelled like diesel. Well, we got married and divorced and one of the girls still has that comforter, cuase her Gran made it fer me. And yes, if you put your nose reel close to dark colored pocket......it still smells like diesel. Never bothered me cause it always seemed like I ended up using the stuff as mouth wash working around the mill.....

Ok, so today I slowed the diesel drip way down while cutting pine and did not notice any difference with the blade staying clean. I did have a little bit of build up on the band wheels but at the end of the day when I was cleaning the mill it wiped off fairly easy. No smell on the clothes either, so I guess I was using too much on the wiping system. Good lesson learned. Now if I could just Gertrude a fur shed built my wife would have nothing to complain about.

Well now.....Perhaps ole Gert might take offense...... Coulda been yer wife's name....or your Mill's. I don't use it often, but I call my mill "Millhouse" when necessary.....or *@$*@&*#!!!

I think
