Gotta really respect how open you are about your "secrets" and business....it's interesting without knowing exactly how the sausage is made, but getting more info is really great. I still can't do what you do, not if you spent 10 years teaching me, and it actually makes me understand EVEN MORE how complicated and meticulous the process is. Thanks.
Quoted from High_End_Pins:
I have a really large sink
Put the wires in there spray them with a variety of cleaners and soaps.
Brush them with a stiff bristle brush.
Rinse under high pressure with hot water.
Hang and blow off with compressed air.
Dishwashers ,ultrasonic cleaners etc.
I have had and used those at times but find the method outlined above the easiest and most effective as well as efficient.
