    Big Orange Box Store and many electrical warehouses sell this:

    It's about 3$ for the shorty can. It's comparable to deoxit at a quarter of the price.

    Looks like it's just a lube, not also a cleaner like de-oxit?

    Yep, just a lubricant, not5 a deoxidizer and contact surface preparation.
    Education is what you're left with after you have forgotten what you have learned.

    That in conjunction with contact cleaner has always worked for me. I don't use that stuff on jacks or sockets.

    Silver oxidizes.

    "Silver oxide is very conductive."

    Maybe in the lab, but not in the real world when the current levels are very low.

    I had to pitch some NOS silver switches as the solder tabs got so bad that they would not take solder. I filed down to the base brass and it would not take solder either. This was unusual, but still...

    PDF link downloads a transparent GIF, nothing else. Original copy of article has some problem also on the Preston Electronics site - there is a web page but it doesn't open properly and all the graphics are missing.
