Chandler & Price Pilot - Cleaning Thoughts?

My C&P Pilot Press was just delivered, and I am over the moon! We are going to take it apart and clean it tomorrow.  Our idea is to blow it out with compressed air to get rid of most of the dust and dirt, and then to wipe it down with cotton cloth that we have sprayed with WD40.  Then we will put it back together and comprehensively oil it up.For those of you that know - does this sound like a good approach?Thanks in advance for your thoughts!Woo Hoo, my Press is Here!:)See More
