Odyssey, triumph over sliders
\:D/ Fatality, Arto, Win \:D/
That was of course pronounced with a Mortal Kombat-ish voice and hopefully in 8-bit sample depth ;). Yeah! I’ve been working on the sliders some hours every week and after about a month the “slider cleanup chores” are over! With a bit of practice (and once I built up the routine of cleaning a slider), it’d take me maybe something like 15-20 mins to clean up and assemble a single slider.
While at it I decided to test out some low-density packing foam as a dust cover for the sliders. There’s a pretty good gap between the sliders and the case, so installing some kind of a dust cover would help keep the dirt away from inside the sliders.
And how did this work? Well, fine for the first minute or so! After that the foam started breaking apart and the slider was full of small foam flakes in no time :). Back to drawing board it is with this mod then, maybe some more rubbery mat might do the trick..
