A man needs only two tools: WD40 and duct tape. If it does not move and should, use the WD40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.

Got an air compressor? A shot of air might dislodge it.

If it's friction polish, try a dry towl. The heat from the friction might reflow the polish - this happened to me with the Hut PPP. I had to heat up the whole piece because it had globbed up in the grain. Be careful not to burn the wood though.

Otherwise, sand it down or pick it out with a dental pick, I guess.

Try brushing with alcohol. Of course that will remove all the friction polish but if it's shellac based it will take it out.

This sounds like a Seinfeld episode! Good luck.
