    Default Cleaning arcade pcbs...

    Aside from blowing them out with an air compressor, what is an effective way to clean arcade pcbs? I thought I read somewhere that people put them in dish washers, let them fully dry, and they're good to go. Has anyone tried this, or have a different tip?

    The paint brush sounds like a good idea... Do you use a dry paint brush, or do you spray any type of cleaner on the board first?

    I have used water, but I don't have a supergun, so who knows if I'm actually screwing things up? Doubtful, though, since I've gotten water on all sorts of other components and haven't messed them up.I guess I should plug together *that machine* sometime to see if it still works!

    Thanks for the advice. I'll give that a shot.
