    Default Cleaning Copper Mods?

    How do I properly clean copper? I have a copper Nemesis and I can't figure out how to clean it properly -_-

    What I did was leave it in hot/boiling water pretty much overnight, but it just made it worse

    Here are pictures:

    Here are the outside parts

    What it looks like on the inside

    Would just simply using alcohol swabs do the trick?

    Also, on a slight tangent, how do I remove the extension from the top contact pin thing (first picture, piece all the way to the right)? It's kind of stuck on there, and I can't use 18650 batteries until I figure out how to shorten the mod.

    Help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    Cape Cod metal polishing cloths.

    But getting a metal polishing paste would be much cheaper.

    As for removing the stuck top, try rubber bands and channel locks. Be sure not to scratch or crush them.

    Cheers.

    I've freed bound mod threads w/ masking tape and fingers.

    Soft metal polish will clean copper. I use silver polish.

    Acetic acid (vinegar). If you can find it a very dilute sulfuric acid solution (under 5% for your safety).

    You can always use Brasso. Cleans all sorts of metal surfaces. As all things chemical, be sure to read and follow directions.

    Tarn-x makes it look like a penny. No dirty mess left behind.

    The best metal polish your ever going to find (aluminum, stainless, copper, brass, silver, gold, pewter, etc)

    Mothers Mag & Aluminum Polish

    You can find it at AutoZone, Advanced Auto, etc

    ..... When the rag turns black .. The metal turns beautiful !



    BTW ... Brasso works good, but not as good as this ... FACT
