Bought a clean shedded unit at as estate sale. Grain feeds fine but small seed box is solid. I don't think it has ben used in many years. Sprayed it with penetrant but is still does not turn. Time to soak with diesel or ?

If you can get a wrench on the shaft apply a little more penetrating oil and tap the wrench to aid the oil.
Don't make it a ''bigger hammer operation" If you can get it running I think you will be better satisfied with
the stand you'll get, Good Luck..

Keep at it with the penetrating oil/lubricant and keep working it back and forth each day and you will get it sorted. Occaisional bit of jarring wont hurt like a sharp tap on the end of the shaft.
I have an old drill with a small seed box with the tubes dropping the seed on the surface behind the tine and follow with a rubber tire roller, works brilliantly on small grass seed and clovers, well worth getting it freed up.
