Re: QCX R36 Replacement Needed-Volume Control
James Daldry W4JED
After years of using Wsssh, Deoxid, Channel Master silicone, LubriClean, WD-40, and a host of other spray cleaners, I've found what works best on volume controls is a drop of automotive motor oil. It even works on cheap Chinese 10-for-a-buck volume controls, which have to be lubricated before first use, or they're noisy.
By the way, you use Wsssh with a Gozinta. It's a brass cylinder
with a plunger, and a 3/8 inch i.d. tubular "business end. You
pull the plunger back, put a few drops of Wsssh in the "business
end, pull the knob off the control, and screw the tube onto the
control threads. You then push the plunger in, blowing the cleaner
past the shaft bearing and into the control. You clean the control
without pulling the chassis out of the cabinet. Cool.
