“I am a retired engineer and have been frustrated with the high price of contact cleaner. Well I found that automotive MAP sensor cleaner will clean contacts, motor armature’s, track, switches, etc… It costs about 1/4 of regular contact cleaner and works just as well and will not damage many plastics. It also is a good de-greaser. Like any cleaner, you should avoid skin contact and inhaling the fumes. It is wonderful for cleaning potentiometers that are noisy or spotty. I hope this is a helpful hint.
Some pics of the layout HO – I am working on…

Thanks to everyone – please do keep ’em coming – you all seem to have gone to sleep!
