39 minutes 41 seconds ago Draining Oil Out of cans by Alex

Ok, I am awful at trying to use the search function at Oldgas...I can't seem to ever find what I am looking for. So....I just bought a Texaco oil can and it is full, but weeping...i.e. leaking some oil.

Opinions on draining and cleaning out oil. Drill holes in bottom? Top? How big the holes? I used to use an old fashioned can opener for opening beer cans before flip tops were invented. My dad called them "church keys." LOL

After emptying the oil so I put together some Dawn diswahing liquid and water and slosh it arond in the can a few times? Better methods? Thanks....

Yesterday at 08:34 PM 2 Months Have Gone By by mcguffeyd1

So we have all been without DB for 2 months as of today. I still check my emails and PM's hoping to see one flashing with Dick's name on it, still waiting on that one. Guess God is a little slow when it comes to getting internet or maybe they ran outta line between here and there. Still waiting on my call back from the internet company.
I got a stack of cans that i wish i could send and have relidded but shipping is ridiculous!!
I know that alot of us will never be the same without the professor, just wanted to say that he is gone but never forgotten.
RIP my friend, you are missed....

On a side note, i have been thinking about taking on some relidding projects. If anyone has an idea to where i can get equipment please let me know. I am interested in doing quart cans for the time being. Please send me a PM if you have any suggestions.
