    I asked about cleaning up the Flexowriters and a friend of mine
reminded me that the old typewriter shops had vats of solvent that they
would dunk the entire assembly into (taking off electrical and rubber parts
before-hand). These are pretty nasty so I thought that sounding like a
good idea. I was thinking of using minerals spirits. Anybody have any
experience with using that on electromechanical stuff? Any sugggestions? I
thought I'd remove the platen and belt on the RH side and any other rubber
parts that I could see. Does anyone know if there are any parts inside the
Flexowriters that should be removed first?
