I was cleaning my benchtop planer yesterday when it occurred to me that I
didn't know what solvent was best for removing the pitch and gunk from the
rollers and metal parts.
Mineral spirits seemed to work, but left behind a bit of a film.
Denatured alcohol cleaned up the mineral spirits OK, but would it take off
the pitch too?
I applied a bit of car wax to the bottom table of the planer to help wood
slide through better.
So what do you folks use to clean your woodworking tools?
