K2R is an industrial stain remover, it might be difficult to locate it.
Simply spray it on, it'll draw the oil out of the wood leaving a white powder that you can vacuum off. I can't begin to express how well it works.

Failing that, Corn starch, repeatedly applied with a covering iron will also do the job.

Hope this helps....

I had the exact same thing happen to me. Dang metal backplate lets the machine screw vibrate loose. I immediately removed the tank from my GP Patty and replaced it with a sullivan type. (same tank setup as the UCD)
The other types do fit, do not re-use the metal one! It will happen again!
