A big pair of pliers? Or how about you buy another jar, another processor, or even better learn how to properly use a kitchen knife?

Fingernali polish remover is suposed to dissolve superglue. Of course, applying it to where it needs to go may be a problem.

Acetone is better, doesn't have all of the gunk that is in fingernail polish remover. And would work great, unless one has a plastic to plastic seal....

I'm beginning to lean towards a .5KG Estwing.

Its always bothered me that in my workshop is a controlled industrial solvent and I need permits for storage and safe handling ...

but my girlfriend can buy it over the counter to clean her fingernails .

If the food processor is plastic then forget acetone . It will just dissolve it

but frankly you should nail it to your wall and use it as a prop to tell your drunk buddies how dumb you were so they all get a good laugh

lol your rig is dangerously outdated my friend! you need to upgrade to this expensive $3000 blender here with a RPM rating of 10,000, or this solid state blender - 1000x quicker!
