    I've got a Rigid also, about 80% full of tranny fluid, antifreeze, metal dust, dirt... paper towels, pieces of metal.

    Still works great. I plan on cleaning all of the stuff out, getting a new filter and some of thoae plastic liners that hold the mess.

    Home Depot sells just about anything that you would want to add to the Rigid too.

    My rigid is approaching 12 yrs. even stopped the motor sucking the bottom crap out of a hot tub. Damn thing keeps ticking. Someone needs to make a better filter for these.
