    What is the best/safest way to clean ink build up? There is a thick layer in front of the ink keys on all of the units.

    what do you mean by ink buildup? Is the ink drying/ solidifying? ( maybe stir it occasionally)?

    The only real way is to scrape it off but when you get near the metal be careful because if you score across them they won’t slide against each other. After scraping most of it off use scotchbrite and acetone to finish it off. Pack the front of the keys with grease to stop it happening again.
