I use white cotton jewellers gloves most of the time but it the main it is just holding the tube near the bottom and avoiding touching the print. I tend to rest my tubes on a terry cloth holding them gently as I clean the pins.

Wow, this is such an inspired and innovative idea. It really is an ingenious solution to pin cleaning and will drastically reduce the time required to remove pin oxidisation.

Bravo German Guy!

Cheers,
Andy.

as result you now can put the fibre glass stick over the whole pin, the shrink-on tube will hold things together, you can clean the whole pin at once by just rotating the stick:





on the left side of the stick with shrink-on tube you can see a just cleaned within 15 seconds pin!

Ordinarily Ian dons his white gloves when Thriller is blaring out from the boom box and he's moonwalking, though occasionally he'll wear them to caress his burgeoning tube collection too.

You realize that with my pin cleaning regime and now my admitting I wear white gloves my OCD tendencies are now out in the open for everyone to see!! blink.gif

BTW GG, talking OCD, man those grados you modded are stunning!
post #609 of 3317

beg your pardon, what means OCD (and thanks a lot for your comment on my latest grado mod!)

post #610 of 3317
OCD is Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

It is when someone shows a compulsion to detail that can be unhealthy.. I call it normal behaviour!biggrin.gif
post #611 of 3317

so my hidden problem may be a destructive tendancy (GDD,  Grado Destruction Disorder) compensated by OCD carefully reconstructing them :-)

 

p.s.  so for all to know what we are talking about: my hidden second personality - http://www.head-fi.org/t/119314/post-your-grado-mods/3300#post_9564376

Just to show you how OCD I am I took a picture of what I was on about, sorry for it being a little blurry, I had the camera on timer to take it!

what a nice picture and it shows a lot. i see one who takes care of everything, the accurate placement of the (clean) cleaning cloth, a neat (hopefully the right word for 'gepflegt') and clean hand, an accurately cutted fingernail, a very relaxed and relaxing scene, so peaceful. and what a wonderful light and nice view into the garden. i see one with the ability to work concentrated while using the time to relax.

 

(i always put too much pressure on myself, always thinking of what i failed to have done correctly or what in addition i can do, or what to do next ...)

Thanks so much GG. I must admit I am known in my work field for being very particular and detail oriented. When I was a child I used to build plastic model kits but I would modify them as well. At the age of 8 my kits were on display in the model shop window as examples of how to build them correctly.

I like neatness (though if you were to see my wild grey hair you might not think that!).

I love old fashioned things. Things that require time and thought, I have mechanical watches and only write with fountain pens.

My way of life is very odd so these little things help keep me on an even keel!
