cleaning 2c39's?

Question - are 2C39's dishwasher proof??

I saw someone sometime ago mention that the best way to clean these
tubes was running them through the dishwasher a couple of time
(might even have been N6CA?)

is it safe!

I have a pair needing cleaned up!

Hi Simon

I read that too and tried it - not a success. The dirty bits were still dirty and the anode fins corroded.

Evening Simon,
                            The XYL does mine along with the Waterford Crystal when required. Placed in the rack bases down and allowed to dry naturally with the dishwasher door slightly ajar. They have all survived but I do mark them with a Black permanent ink pen on the anodes to keep a check on the rough hours run and in which amp.Some of the old STC ones are nearly 20yrs old and still going strong.
Regards

OK well I will have a go - the metal work on them is grimey and the
only time I have seen this is with cig. smoke.

sort of yellow tarnishing

I will try - if the anodes get corodded thats no big deal as they
are getting water cooled anyway!

thanks Ted!

welcome to the group BTW

regards

Simon
