Cleaning pot metal parts



(-----) January 14, 2008

I have a old jukebox and need to clean the mechanism which is mostly pot metal and hard to get at some of the parts, so I need to know
what is the best and most economical way to clean pot metal. Thank you Peter

Cleaning is always a question of both the substrate (pot metal in this case) and the soils (which are not known in this case), Peter. Assuming the soils are mostly oils and greases, carburetor cleaner should do it. Good luck.
