i knew you folks would know the truth and tell it . what you yall use/recomend ?
Best bet, forget wd40, or any other lube type cleaner, open your wallet/save your pennies, Buy the Deoxit....
most any tuner cleaner without a lubricant will do, but Deoxit does work well.....
Just my opinion...
Does the trick for me.
CRC Industries Product Detail
it washes the positive coefficient friction grease from the spindles and leaves the pot as slack as a turd in a pisspot, also leaves greasy residue that collects dust,
imho deoxit in its different forms is the best i have used and worth every penny,
on connectors i use 100% deoxit then wash it off with iso alchohol and treat with deoxit gold preservative, that stuff even makes expensive hifi interconnects sound better,
deoxit do fader lube but i aint tried it yet to see how effective it is.
What's the mathematical formula for working out the slackness of a turd in a pisspot?
Hope its easier to fathom than the astroplane,pmsl.
WD40 is definately better left for squeaky doors.My money would go on deoxit faderlube or servisol 10.
Jeez Bob it's lunch time. As for me I use CRC QD Contact Cleaner for my pots whether music instrument or radio it works fine.
says itll clean about 150 pots ....
I've been using the canned air, I tip the can upside-down and hit th inside of the pot with non-cfc's. Doesn't work too well - but it does work somewhat. I need to get something better myself. I got a few radios that needs some serious pot cleaning too.
thanks folks .
I spent 22 years of my life maintaining commercial radio broadcast equipment including production and on-air audio consoles and refuse to use a cleaner UNLESS it does have a lubrication compound in it.The zero residue cleaners will clean the pots but the fact that they are dry after causes them to wear out prematurely. We had McCurdy slide pots that cost $250 EACH. If cleaner with a lube was good enough for them it's good enough for a $0.99 radio pot. We used, and I still do at home, Nu-Trol Control Cleaner with lube available from any M.G. Chemicals dealer.
LOL, 33 years in Electronics repair, and mine is just the opposite, although the crappy quality of the lubed cleaner back in the day probably turned me away from using it. Never had any wear out I know of, even though they weren't $250 Pots
I sprayed some electronic cleaning stuff into some pots on a Fender Super Reverb and it froze them up. :headbang
Yes, I thought they all did.
EXACTLY what I had happen to me with one of the McCurdy pots when I used the zero residue cleaner by the same manufacturer. Thankfully the McCurdy slide pots could be taken apart, cleaned and lubed and put back together.
