Rubbing alcohol might be a good idea also
post #9707 of 12988

Good point, actually denatured alcohol works really good and leaves absolutely nothing behind.   I have also found it to be great for getting marks off the faceplates and cleaning connectors.

Those small foam brushes have been helpful for me in the past.

You can get electronic cleaning solvent, and then clean gently with a small paint brush. The alcohol will evaporate.

Oh I knew that! 

 

I'm a little jealous my friend. Don't mind saying so ;) I have a feeling that the sound will be right up my ally. Warm, velverty and sweet as the sweetest potato from a bag of sweet potatoes that have been hand selected because of their sweetness :D

 

Have fun!

Can someone tell me if this model 8 had new caps?
post #9715 of 12988

I would take a wager that they are the original caps. They look Japanese. Also the condition overall is very good including the insides by the looks of things.

This is the cleanest most minty vintage receiver I've seen. I am super crazy about cleaning these receivers up and making them look as new as possible. There is not a single thing that I can do to make this one look any better. 

 

Those caps in the picture still have a reflective luster on top which is why I asked if they might be new.

Those Nippon caps were common in the 70s and now so tough to tell.  What does the business end of the cap look like?  Any discoloration?

They look better than any vintage receiver cap that I've ever seen. Like new. I may check with the seller and see if there was any replacement done. I wasn't told about a recap so that why I'm kinda surprised.

The cap does look good from the picture you posted.

Have you plugged her in matt? Is she sweet? 

 

Or are you oiling her up first... :tongue_smile:
