        Hello Boatman,

        The below assumes you meant using an oil-based flood coolant for
        MACHINING, NOT for continuous bath of the spindle bearings, whichare
        greased in belt-drive machines.

        A bilge pump (Rule is one mfr. that westmarine carries) can work
        well, combined with a 5 gallon pail and a 12v supply.

        Otherwise, using a parts washer from HF and adding some tubing works.

        Hope this helps.
