Seems like I ask for more help/advice than I give, mostly cuz I don't know as much as you all. Anyway, a very handy thing to have for cleaning small spaces are these microbrushes. I have an old Marantz Amp, from a couple years ago I never got completely put back together. It had a slide pot with a spring loaded ball bearing that was all gooked up and would not stay free. I soaked the crap out of it off and on with deoxit, would come free briefly than stick again. was contemplating the colossal job of removing that pot and disassembling it when the microbrush :idea: popped in my head. Another tip, I have a bottle of grain alcohol that I use frequently to clean adhesive/what not off and carefully dabbed some in the slider divots. Then, soak up and remove the crud cleaning the tip on a paper towel.

You can buy these on the ebay from Chiner for a buck https://www.ebay.com/itm/Micro-Brush-Applicator-Eyelash-Extension-Swab-Permanent-Makeup-Tools-1-2-1-5-2-0/182402290291?hash=item2a78061273:m:mY_8c1XNhSvY37dppf8tIxg .

I use a US brand but these are probably fine. I also use them often to clean selector switches, dabbing deoxit on the tip and rubbing the contact surface. It really saves on the deoxit which ain't cheap and cleans the surfaces better.

Hope this is a worthwhile tip!

Neat idea, I find that these dental brushes are really useful, espically for cleaning tube sockets.
