Does anyone have advice on how to clean the glass on a vintage Fisher 500C receiver? I recently acquired one in dire need of cleaning and have heard horror stories of removing the screenprinting from the glass. Any advice would be much appreciated.

I haven't worked on a 500C in too many years to recall if the numbers, etc, are baked on enamel or decals. If it's enamel you can just wipe it with a paper towel moistened with some Windex or similar. If decals, you need to lightly moisten a q-tip with some Windex and clean around them without getting the decals overly wet. It's painstaking work, and you will need a few dozen q-tips, but it can be done. I've used these methods to clean the dial glasses of a few hundred antique radios and it works out quite well.
