What is the best way to clean or maintain your Fabkit (besides removing debris)?
Shopvac, pressurized air and a soft cloth is all I use, esp near the lenses and mirrors!
Oh, and I’ve once flushed and refilled the cooling system…
At RevSpace (Hackerspace Den Haag), I clean the FabKit with Alklanet and a clean microfiber cloth (one that absorbs very well), wearing gloves because the smell doesn’t easily come off once it’s on your skin.
Note: don’t clean the parts that have grease on them, unless it’s really dirty. The grease is there for a reason, and you will have to apply new grease if you remove it. If I recall correctly, white lithium grease is suggested.
These are some helpful tips for everyone. Thx @CescoAiel and @Juerd.
Till now I only used vacuum cleaner for the debris and isopropanol for the mirror with a cotton swab/Q-tip starting in the middle and circling outward.
I forgot to mention the IPA… Yes, use IPA for cleaning mirrors!
