Head cleaning under microscope

Sat Sep 07, 2019 6:56 pm

What is the best method to remove dirt from heads when viewing through a microscope ?

What would be used as the applicator and what would be cleaning agent ?

Thanks as always for any info.

I use the method Jared shared in this video,with 99.9% IPA. Be careful you don't snag a brush hair in the gimbals though.

Thanks Larry, got plenty of 99.9% IPA, what kind of brush is best to use ?

I bought these blue stick things with a bristled end on them, but they look too harsh to use :o
