    I've used mineral spirits in the past with good success. Might want to wear rubbed gloves when you do it. WD-40 also helps soften it up, but it takes more elbow grease to get the cosmo off.

    Hmmmmm...... a company that specializes in sales of machinery with thousands of eBay sales sells it for this price. Can we assume they know the market value of this machine or did they make a mistake?

    Congrats, you got a great deal. I paid more for a 24 year old Supermax. It does have a power feed and DRO tho. Wanna trade?

    Maybe they have to move some inventory to pay the bills or survive.
