After some years the rubber/plastic on the top surface of my T.120 (around the plate and the command buttons) is very sticky.
Bad, bad feeling when you touch this surface.
I would like to underline that the usage of my T.120 was not very intensive and always in my home (no dust, no smoke, like in a club for example).
The problem now is how to try to replace or to clean this surface. On the web there are some people that suggest something…but I am not sure these are good methods. Any professional and previously proved suggestion is well accepted!!

Thank you!

Bye bye from Italy.

I do not have a good solution. I know that rubber was on the older turntables and got that way with some users in certain cases of humidity etc. I wish there was an easier way to place a SKIN on it but I don't see that or others have the measurements as the T.120 has been discontinued for so long.

A good way to clean rubber is hot water and dish soap. Should work great. You could also try automotive shampoo if that doesn't work. Works great on tires, so why not. I really think dish soap would work, and maybe use a brush.

I had the same issue Confocal and used Isopropyl alcohol on some nylon cloth, the result was good!

The alcohol didn't harm the rubber or the logos.
