    Regarding Thymol
    "A minor use is in bookbinding: before rebinding, books with mold damage can be sealed in bags with thymol crystals to kill fungal spores"
    sounds hopefull
    Might even be useful for the lens as well.
    "There are a great many things I am in doubt about at the moment, and I should consider myself favoured if you would kindly enlighten me. Signed, Doubtful, off to Canada." (BJP 1914).

    Certainly might be a good way of stopping fungus in its tracks while the gear is awaiting repair time. The fungus would still be there, of course, even if it was dead, so I'd still clean it off.

    Thymol looks like the way to go. It seems quite easy to get online from companies supplying bee-keeping materials, and not grossly expensive.
