    If just dusting some air and brushing when apart/ disassembled apart. (Just blowing compressed in can bend it) most can also be cleaned with gas (not sure about opti)

    Melted in metal means fresh reeds.

    Sanding and such alters the performance and best handled buy a competent reed tuner.

    Man, if I had the motor tore down that far and ANY question about the reed condition, I'd replace them.

    Just my opinion.
