My first impression is that it’s gonna cost you a minimum C-note if you take it in anyway, so why not just try the WD40 on the posts anyway?

What was wrong with it a few months ago that you had to get it fixed? (Maybe you discussed this in a previous post from back then and I haven’t seen it.)

Is there really grease on the posts?

Don’t go crazy, but see if you can gently get the WD40 to soak into the minute gap between the posts and the mechanism and see if you can get it loose. If successful, you can then clean the posts with a fine polish of 0000 steel wool and then lube again. Try to avoid getting any of the WD40 on the feed rollers.

That’s how I clean the posts on my Delta planer (going on 20 years old, and it’s never been to the shop).
