Paint Thinner Recycling Ideas


Looking for a few ideas to reuse paint thinner. I'd like to separate the dirty stuff from the clean and reuse it. Filters? Pumps? Anyone have a good system that works?

Let it sit and it will settle out. Pour off the clear and your good to go. Let the sludge dry out.
