If it were me, I think I'd enlist professional help at this point. I used to have good luck with a guy named Herb Kohler (Tele-Optics, I think it was), but that was many moons ago. Surely there must be another outfit that is servicing old telescopes, though.

Succes, but I used a different approach.

I just stuffed a broom brush handle in there lol

Going to desolder the rings this evening and clean out the tubes and height/focus adjustment.

Any recomendations on grease that should be used?

Read about white lithium or even chainsaw grease.

Going to remove the excess solder and regrease everything this evening.

Need to order some coldblue also to touch up the squares

Scope is back together, ordered some Schnellbrünierung from Ballistol
I'm going to try to dilute it with some cleaning fluid so the finish won't be really black.

I did, but not everything came off so cleaned with a fine scotchbrite pad afterwards and ready for coldblue.

the spots you see in the rectangles are corrosion and filing marks from when the mounts were installed in 1925-26.
