I really like the flow, chimes, and art of the EMs and so I've got some... and a EM book, dvd, friends, plus You/internet, some tools and products! But I'm just getting started in my learning.
Been reading on the proper cleaning techniques and what I'd quite appreciate is your breakdown of cleaning. Got the rings and bulbs but while we're here , clear and wax or something more?
more pics to follow, but first, True Grit in the Wild Wild West, partner.
