    In essence, your favorite fine abrasive applied minimally, is the productive solution. I use the scotchbrite pad myself. I've used chrome polish in the past.

    The key, regardless of how you refresh the traces, is to apply some Superlube afterward to keep the followers from cutting into the board traces.

    Quoted from EM-PINMAN:

    3 in 1 is old news, good back in the day but way better products are out now. I use Super Lube Teflon Oil.

    For liquid form lube I recommend Tri Flow Teflon Lube in the squeeze bottle. Stays well on the parts it is lubricating and does not draw in dirt and debris.

    That's it. I find it at Harbor Freight.

    Thanks for the reassurance, Chris. Much appreciated.

    This isn't our first rodeo.
