Hey everyone! thanks for all the support you have given me as I learn to laser, I appreciate all the replies.
(using pro if that maters)
Today i’m here because I recently used some wood that probably had more glue in it than needed, or some other material that gunked up my system. I went through a days worth of printing and the system shut down possibly to an overheat. I have an additional exhaust fan on the line on the way out so its not backing up or blocked.
I started to try and clean like normal but everything feels like glue residue stuck to every surface. I’ve gone through several rolls of paper towels and q-tips on all the reachable surfaces and am still finding more grime each time i wipe. I’m concerned I can’t reach all the components on the left half of the machine, there looks to be a few boards and a heat sync over there that I’m weary about using any cleaner on directly. Canned air and suction don’t seem to do much to move any of it either. Whats the best way to tackle grime like this? How important is it that I get after the components in the left housing? the right side seems to be clear due to the air flow direction.
