I was very happy to hear that on his IG live. I can't wait to see the small batch of exotics he made up as well.
I wouldn't crank the screw down too aggressively, just enough so everything is snug. Wirtdog had it a little loose before. For cleaning you'd have to have a look at the underside of your pick and if it looks discoloured at all I'd clean it up.So if I wanted to see if my 1.5 would go a little faster I could try bugging we've coppery pick contact and/or cranking the screw more aggressively?
