Any u guys use "strip" tube? PVC tube filled with DNA into which a varnished rod section is suspended to remove old varnish while perserving original wraps.
Like to hear about ur experiences and any tips.
Thanks all

Curious- does this remove all the varnish from the wraps?

I have used denatured alcohol in a tube to remove varnish several times.  Though it removes the vast majority (90%+) of the varnish, a little touch up with acetone on a cotton ball is often still needed.  I have never really tried to save the original wraps on any rod soaked in alcohol in a tube so cannot comment on that procedure.  If I am trying to save the wraps I use lots and lots of cotton balls moistened with alcohol rather than a tube full.

Not entirely sure John. Havent tried it yet. Though Id trawl for tips first.
Of course, thanks for posting Harry.
Hoping technique will be considerable less labor intensive than qtip/DNA
route.
