Can any-one give me a little bit of advice please. The lathe that I have now got has a coolant tank and pump etc, the lathe is in an unheated garage that gets down to freezing point at times in the winter ( I bet some-one has got a good idea of the question that I'm going to ask already)
1. Will the coolant freeze or as it has got emulsifying oil it won't freeze?
2. If it will freeze can I put some motor vehicle anti-freeze in it as that has got corrosion inhibitors in it?
3.Would it affect the coolant, in that will it go gooey a bit like sour milk?
It may sound a simple and silly question to you, but I don't know the answer.
