Here I sit with what is basically a new Pro knowing pretty directly all the hassles of cleaning the liquified wood off of everything including the rear exhaust fan that was Puff’s Bain and the biggest design flaw in the whole concept. so how can I best keep it from building up or failing that make it easiest to clean?
Mechanical solutions such as cutting out the grill should not be an option at least for now, but one thing that has been rattling around in my head is the idea of putting something on the clean surface that the smoke sludge would not adhere to or adhere to weakly. I considered LPS3 as it leaves a film of what seems like beeswax that will keep iron parts working for years. However, I am pretty sure that the wax and wood gunk would be mutually soluble and would make the build-up faster and worse.
In looking through what I have I see that silicon spray leaves a dry non-conducting surface that would bind reasonably to the plastic but might be a weak bond to the wood gunk that while not Teflon might be easier to wipe off or dissolve than a build up on raw plastic.
Or it might just build up faster and be no easier to remove.
I toss this out for comment or suggestion from the many far more knowledgeable than myself to get some feedback. The laser head and windows would be protected as what the beam would do to silicone I would not wish to guess.
