Cleaning Chrome Moly



Kent,

Regarding cleaning of chrome-moly tubing, you mention using alcohol as opposed to acetone. What specific type of alcohol (isopropyl, denatured, ethyl) do you recommend or does it matter? I really enjoyed your chrome-moly video


The Tinman Respondeth:

Don,

I like 70% isopropyl. Cheap, available, non-toxic, excellent solvent. 100% is available, but can readily corrode aluminum, so I do not recommend. I am very glad you benefitted from the tape.
