: Thanks for your feedback. I looked through the internet for Dibutyl phthalate. And I found it. But the sources I found wanted something like $10 for a half gallon. I'm sorry ... I didn't tell you I'm incredibly cheap. Some of the literature indicates that it is used in fixing polymers. No chance it will melt the shaft to the body of the pot is there? Another common application listed was for nail care. Do you suppose I might find it on the health & beauty shelf of a drug store?
Have you ever tried to remove the knobs and/or the circuit
board on your tapco?
You must remove the knobs to access the shaft to apply
the Dibutyl......I have repaired HUNDREDS of these and
I can honestly tell you that it is very difficult to accomplish
this yourself without breaking several pots by simply removing and
reinstalling the knobs.
I will loosen and and replace any broken pots on your
mixer (and clean the pots, etc) for $ 50.00.
Lip service is cheap....take it to a pro!!!!
