    150 or slightly higher # sandpaper. Just on the contact area enough to remove the dirt that interferes with the electrical connection.

    EDIT: 220. Really good on the rivets on Bally stepper units.

    I use a thin , very thin coating of MBI Instrument grease. If cfh is reading this, then I use WD-40; sprayed all over everything, including the numbers on the score reels

    Quoted from RyanClaytor:

    Mr Bally, I'm guessing you meant 1500? 150 sounds pretty coarse, but again, I'm new to this.
    Also, a lot of people have mentioned:

    I meant 220, which may seem coarse to some, but is what I use. It's quick to cut through the greas and dirt.
