Cleaning Pinch Rollers
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi Guys, I read up on a few different methods of cleaning pinch rollers and one said donít use IPA as it can dry the rubber out, mine were hard with a glaze, I decided to see what happened if I used a blade and just rotated the roller by hand, the glaze came off and they seem to be ok again, the blade rests nice and square on the roller supports :-)

Believe it or not but I use saliva, applied to a cloth or cotton buds. Especially good for removing tape deposits.
