Replacing Juno 60 toggle switch and slider gasket felt

Post by NCChao1268 » Sat Sep 14, 2019 5:09 am

Hello everyone, just got a Juno 60 in good condition though needs a little cleaning up.

Only things to note are:

1. Octave transpose switch is broken off, any pointers on replacing it? I was thinking of using a finer tip soldering iron with a desoldering tool.

2. The black felt gaskets around the sliders are dirty and the one around the octave transpose switch is missing. Anyone ever replace the felt? Is it necessary?

3. Keys all work though it wouldn't be a bad idea to clean them up. Is it possible to separate the keys from the contacts entirely?

Lastly how do you remove the slider caps?

Thanks for reading

I would definitely replace those gaskets, they help to prevent dust and dirt getting into the slider pots. When they get old they dry out and become brittle and bits come off, which could end up getting into the sliders!
