Does anyone have sugestions on how to clean the "gunk" off the tack iron which has accumulated over time during the mounting process???
Acetone does not work as I experimented briefly. thank you

I think the best thing to use is Bestine, which is rubber cement thinner. It's available in most art stores.
I think lighter fluid would also work, and probably mineral spirits or paint thinner. However, with these solutions, I recommend you wipe the iron off with alcohol to remove chemical residue.

Also, use a little scrap of "release paper" when you tack in future and you won't need to clean it again!

There are several products which remove adhevise(spelling)like the ones you use to remove stickers off your car window. Pat
