Makita 2040 planer restoration
I recently picked up a Makita 2040 planer. As expected the rollers were cooked but it was all there and the price was right. I removed the roller cores and sent them out for recovering so I figured I’d clean this beauty up while I’m waiting to get them back. My question is, what’s the best way to clean off all of the goo/residue from the disintegrated rollers? I’m thinking lacquer thinner maybe? I’m sure several of you have dealt with this mess. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
