Got it at the same place. Also most part stores sell it.Some people use different stuff like mineral spirits.

I picked one up at an auction for $25 and the dumb@ss had used diesel fuel in it. Man does that thing stink.

My wife bought me one at the grocery store. Of course, I had to wait until she used all the coffee out of it.

Instead of a coffee can, use a gallon oil or 5quart or antifreeze jug. Lay on side and cut the side out. Also has a handy pour drain at no extra charge. Works for years. BIGG C

I use a water based cleaner from these guys. http://www.jclayton.com/Home/BrowseCategorys.asp?DeptID=107

Works great, and you don't have to worry about a open drum of diesel fuel or flammable solvent around the shop.

I have a regular parts washer from northern and use castol super clean in it,that way its nonflamable, smells descent and a little cheaper than parts solevent. I do have to delute it with water 50/50 but works good.
