Hi to all, has anybody cleaned pyralin nobs from a Pflueger Redifor? I have a double nob handle with the nobs having accumulated decades of oil, grease, dirt and who knows what else, the reel cleaned up nice but the handle detracts from its appearance. tried a sonic bath but no luck.
Try a miracle eraser sponge. Wet it and light rub - Absolutely amazing how they work and don't have the scratch-like abrasive that other products have. Follow up with a jewelers cloth rub down and the knobs will look new provided internal spider cracking hasn't started.
Thanks for the ideas guys I tried the dish washing liquid with toothbrush and the miracle eraser sponge both removed a bit, but in looking at the nobs with a jewelers loop the surface at the ends looks like dark alligator skin, not sure if that's from oxidation or what, but it's very hard. Any other ideas, I'm listening.
Low Profile that's exactly the style of my nobs except they're a double. One spins freely and the other one drags a bit. Looking thru the jewelers loop I can see a tiny crack about 1/16 in each one. It may be time to find a replacement handle for the reel. Thanks for your help.
