Default Aluminum oxide build up.

I use a fine wire "tooth" brush for starters. Anything else gets the rotary wire brush in my Foredom or Dremel.

Just don't breath the dust.....

does anyone ever spray a layer of clear laquer on the top of the plate to keep that from happening? guessing it's the reaction of the aluminum with the tanning chemicals from the leather...

I'm thinking it's moisture in general..... Leather will hold moisture (sweat / humidity / rain water??) next to the plate. Maybe it's a catalyst for the tanning agents?? I have used black adhesive pipe wrap to some success. A think layer of HDPE film may do the trick as well....
