We use an industrial ultrasonic cleaning machine to clean reels before servicing them. This is not my wifes jewelry cleaner-it is a machine designed for cleaning and de-greasing sensitive electronic parts. We use a biodegradable cleaning solution that is safe on the reels finish. Most reels are packed with grease from the factory and you will notice a difference in how the reel casts after it has been thoroughly cleaned and greased. The top three pictures are of an ABU 7000 that came in to be cleaned and inspected to see why it was not functioning properly-lots of surface corrosion! After cleaning the brake plate looks like new and the reel is functioning perfect again!
