Dec cleaning

7:39 PM. Started cleaning the NEQ6 Declination axis hardware. Used brake cleaner, dirty rag, clean rag, and cotton swabs to remove the grease.

7:57. Found metal lodged in teflon bottom ring. Cleared it out.

Inspected the main bearings. JESA W2 6008 RS. Found slight corrosion. Remove small little particulate in the end one.

Cleaned the worm gear hardware. Corrosion under main grub. JESA WS (or W5) 608Z.

8:37. Had another go but I could not remove the bottom race from the casing due to slight deformation in casing's edge, at the opening.
