For those of you that have rebuilt KT34s, what technique did you use to clean
inside the clamps.  I thought of buying a round file.  Any other ideas?

Also, do you recommend disassembling everything on the elements?  I don't have
to disassemble everything to replace the blue caps, i.e. the two clamps and L
shaped aluminum coming away from both sides of the insulator and the end element
piece, but maybe it is worth it due to the amount of oxidation I see everywhere

And finally, what is a good way to clean up the screws which have a lot of
oxidation at the top of the threads?

Thanks, Pete ws4g
