    Time to strip down the rest and plop them into my cleaning solution which is……. dare I reveal it, as most watch tinkerers really frown on its use….. Zippo lighter fluid 😆 It doesn’t melt the shellac, it de-greases and cleans perfectly, dries rapidly and it has a great smell, plus it’s cheap and readily available 🙄

    Hi Chris, Could you please explain your procedure for cleaning using lighter fuel…also do you use a rinsing solution or maybe pure alcohol as a final quick rinse…hand clean, machine or ultrasonic.
