Hi all,

had miss-hap on set yesterday,

my M-One motor fell into dry mud and the sandy dirt got into the lemo connector. I cleaned it out as best I could on the spot, using compressed air and orange sticks.
But connecting the cable to it later still made the ugly sound of some remaining sand in there...

my question: what is recommended to completely clean lemo connectors in situations like these?

thanks,
Jerry

CRC Electrical contact cleaner, you can get it at Pep Boys/NAPA/Kragen/Autozone

Spray it in while pointing the open end of the connector down
