    I would be very hesitant to use an abrasive tool on a jack.

    Typically, the jack contacts are plated.

    So any abrasion will remove the plating exposing the bare metal and setting up a condition of future failure.

    The tool is called a "burnishing" tool, so I am assuming that it is a very, very fine grit. (think crocus cloth).
    That said. It is still abrasive.

    I use a .22 ga, gun cleaner brush with nylon bristles. Add alcohol or your favorite solvent

    I have used a burnishing tool like Dude's for decades. We used to use them on pinball machine relay contacts and ball sensor switches. They work magic on the shunt contacts in 1/4" jacks. That narrow one fits nicely in the sections of Cliff type jacks, but just drawing it through the open Switchcrafts like old Fender does wonders. Burnishers are super fine, you won't feel any roughness with your fingers. They are used to polish metal surfaces, not to move metal.


    I also have a end bristle brass brush for my Dremel I clean barrels with. People criticize that claiming the finish on the jack will flake off. If that soft brass brush takes the finish off the jack barrel, then the finish was already loose.

    By the way, to me, this is a deburring tool:

    WHen I was a kid, I drilled crude holes in chassis by making a circle of 1/8 holes, then ream it out to smooth the hole edge.

    Specifically, it is a deburring reamer.

    Those other tools are also useful.

    The pen style is for light work, cleaning up edges. But if you ever drilled a circle of small holes, punched out the center, the remaining perforation edge is way too rough for the pen type.

    Point was to differentiate deburring tools from burnishers.

    Are you sure the price is for the burnisher and not for the MACHINE SCREW PAN PHILLIPS 6-32?

    I saw that screw reference and wondered about it also. But the price looks right, they are in the $4 to $5 range on amazon. (GC9337)
