This may seem obvious, but these things aren't steel. I was there the morning in 1959 when Larry discovered that it hadn't been a good idea to soak the Porsche Carrera crankcase (yup, the one with the roller bearing crank) in the degreasing tank overnight. Not much left exceppt the studs.

I have some pretty resistant crud in places on my mill - probably combination of oil, and mist coolant, and fine swarf. Shop rag and brush didn't do the job, I'm thinking of acetone? What would you guys do?

Try Oil Eater its like Formula 409 on steroids, I do not think it would bother aluminum alloys, and it is non flammable.
