    Cleaning my 1888 Waltham AGAIN ! Gummy Anchor oil ! Noticed some lint got into it but nothing enough to
    stop the movement. #3949617. Cleaning it with a fine brush, part by part, with kerosene.
    Then dish soap and after a hot water rinse, into the US cleaner.. Took pics. post later…
    Had to re-do the process 3 times for some parts !!!!
    It’s just my guess, but cleaning parts with the Ultra Sonic cleaning machine with pure hot water turns
    any residual oil into a jell. Any thoughts ?
