Dust and audio/video equipment.
- Dust and audio/video equipment.
Dust loves electronics and it seems I spend a lot of time dusting my
gear. More so than the rest of the house. Weapons used in my dust war
have been feather dusters, cotton rags, damp cotton rags, glass
cleaner on the TV screen. It's a CRT. Even anti static sprays
designed for clothing and those designed to keep dust off ceiling fan
blades. These with mixed results. I always keep in mind some such
chemical could harm audio gear surfaces. And in my case home made
wood chassis. I'm sure I'm not the first to discover this little
trick but I tried a paint brush with 2 and 1/4 inch long soft
bristles the other day. It proved very useful and effective when
brushing on and around tubes and transformers on my amps. Getting to
nooks and crannies in a quick, time saving, effective way. It really
worked well in, on and around odd crevices and cracks of the tonearm,
cartridge and under the platter edges. A much more secure feeling
than a cloth and the worries of snagging that stylus. Anyway, it
seems to be a good weapon in the war on dust. Hope this is useful to
some. Any other ideas on keeping dust at bay? 8:-) jim...
