No wonder it takes so long, 6-7 hours on our gas range. We (I) keep it 
pretty clean so its been years since its been invoked. But thats 
probably a valid alternative the next time I go to make tapered gibs for 
a lathe, which my 70 yo Sheldon needs for the ultimate in cnc accuracy, 
but I've other wear to remove/replace before I get that picky with it.
