    i've done before once oiling a rapid compur. i also have luberication plan for compur shutters in hand. i used the synthetic watch oil möbius 9010 to oil the shaft and bearing. gear should not be oiled. for solvent i used lighter fluid from zippor, which volatilize very quickly.

    It leaves an oily residue which both contaminates the synthetic Moebius oil and causes it to spread. In other words it makes all the work of cleaning and lubricating the shutter pointless.

    There are indeed lighterfluids which are not that clean themselves and leave a residue.
    My favorite lighterfluid is the one from the german DM Drogerie (Benzin für Feuerzeuge u.Haushalt).

    Hope they still sell it as i didn't see any last time i was around there.

    I ultrasonically clean small parts in an aqueous solution, using soft soap, isopropyl alcohol and (if the metal is compatible) ammonia. Rinse (two rinses) in boiling water and dry on a warm (just hot enough to hold your hand on for 10-15 seconds) hotplate, the parts dry in seconds. If there is dried/hardened grease, soak in any petroleum solvent, benzine, naphtha, Coleman fuel, etc. Final clean as above. Peg out all pivot holes until the peg emerges clean, clean pivots in pith or cork. You can't properly clean a shutter without disassembling it.

    Edit - There's no point using a high quality oil if the surfaces are not properly cleaned and prepared. I believe Moebius has a datasheet regarding this; Moebius oils are for clocks and watches and have fairly specific applications.
    Don't leave springs in the ultrasonic for more than 15 seconds or so, I'd clean them by hand myself.
    There are endless ways to do half a job; many are recommended on the internet and even illustrated on youtoob.

    Here in the states I use CRC QD Electronic Cleaner, http://crcindustries.com/auto/?s=05103. It does an excellent job and leaves no residue. It is sold in automotive parts stores and hardware stores.
    The CRC Germany site lists Electronic Cleaner http://www.crcind.com/crc/CRCproduct...ONIC%20CLEANER which is probably similar and Precision Cleaner http://www.crcind.com/crc/CRCproduct...SION%20CLEANER which is much stronger may damage some plastics.
    Requirements are: leaves no residue, does not remove coatings, safe on plastics and rubber.
