Kinda cool little Union just got here. The mouth isn't moving so I'm hoping some WD40 helps. Other than that ( kinda important feature) it looks pretty good. I'll have to find a newer blade for it. This ones pitted pretty badly but for me and my strong liking for Unions it was worth $10.00!!

Union made a knuckle, but it was different. This may be a replacement or after Stanley bought them. http://www.timetestedtools.net/2016/01/27/who-made-that-knuckle-block/

I'll take another pic once I get it back together. It has some sort of grey stuff on the bottom that a friend said it was called ofos or something like that. He said it turns rust back into metal. :-/ Anyway I'm going to try to get the bottom off unless it's going to break it. If not I'll put it back like it is and let it be.

Soak it in some good penetrating oil or the acetone-tranny fluid mix.

Acetone/tranny fluid? Hmmm. My 17B has the same problem, but no ofos or whatever that is. I tried to gently pry it, and I put the knob in without the cam and gently whapped it on a wooden bench, but nada. I should buy penetrating oil, too...
