You guys are the best!
My son and I have had a look at the links and are going to give it a try tonigh.
We have been using the regular solvent and lubricante, I think it's no.9? As far as the action, I have been using surgical locking hemostats (I sell medical supplies and have some instrument's here and there). I have tried to be careful with the solvents because I once heard that it was not a good thing to get alot of it where you couldnt wipe it up.
One of the site's xRapidDavex provided mentioned a toothbrush. Here I am trying to be as delicate and precise as I can and I should have been using a toothbrush.
Many thanks to you all who responded. Ever since I had to leave LE I have not found the comrodery I am starting to feel from my new friends at UCC.com
