    Also do the missile silo tour! It's a hell of a long drive out, but so worth it. Amazingly interesting and if you aren't already, it will put you off nuclear missiles for life.

    When was it last serviced?

    Care to share?

    I clean the dials with steradent as it removes the green/brown oxide from inside the cracks which helps a lot. It also removes stubborn marks and old animal glues.
