In Response To: Removing very old varnish from plastic (bakelite)? (Todd H)

Any thing that will strip the varnish will probably also dissolve the plastic whether is is bakelit or not. I wouls try scraping the varnish off with a scapel or razor blade if done carefully you can proabably remove the varnish wihout damaging the knobs. You might dull the knobs somewhat in the process, but they should respond to polishing with compounds.
