    The pots are original,where do I apply de-oxit or another brand of contact cleaner to get rid of the shorting out and scratchy sound when turning them. Thanks , Jim

    Yes, Deoxit is probably the best safest cleaner on the market. Give each pot a little squirt and turn at least fifty times.

    Only Deoxit through the slots in the pot and sparingly
    My experience is that it will either be fixed by 10 full turns or it needs replacing.

    Haven't tried this but always wanted to rebuild an old pot (to keep manufacturing date) with new guts.
