Lord Valve Admonisheth, AGAIN…
Tuner cleaner is for cleaning tuners. Hopefully, the fact that there
are no currently produced television sets which use mechanical-contact
tuners will encourage the maintenance-chemical manufacturers to stop
making the goddamn stuff. DO NOT put tuner cleaner into your pots.
Silicone-based crud like Blue Shower and Tun-O-Wash will quiet your
pots for about three hours…when the solvent vehicle evaporates out of
the pot, it’ll be worse than it was before. Invest in a can of Caig
DN5S-6 and a can of Caig MCL100-2. These two formulations are used by
major studios all over the world, and all of the US military branches;
also by major corporations such as Raytheon, Hewlett-Packard, IBM,
Samsonite, and damn near every audio-equipment manufacturer you’d care
to name. Anyone who tells you to use tuner cleaner for any audio
maintenance procedure is either a rookie or fulla crap.
