Removing the gunk!

After some tests this weekend, and with the advice of Doug Coulter, I decided my vacuum system needed a nice top to bottom clean. So, today after I got home from school I: took the chamber apart, cleaned all of the flanges thoroughly with Simple Green, scrubbed ’em down with a scotch bryte pad, soaked them in a lye solution, and then stored them in a bag that has a litte bit of acetone in it. I’ll try and update again tomorrow with more information on the cleaning attempts and some new toys! Since everyone seems to love pictures, here are a few:
