Now that I'm removing the tank I may as well give the contacts the once over. The problem is Caig don't sent Aerosols overseas by post and I can't find an Irish supplier. There are little tubes of stuff available from fleabay are these as good and which one(s) to get?

Some of the guys here get it from the shops that sell musical instruments. I believe it is used to clean the plug terminals on music keyboards etc.
The little packs do work the same but don't last long, they are very small.

I reckon so Charlie those little brushes would be handy too. An aerosol of D5 would work out at €25 if I could get their european agent to post it. A tad expensive!

88,
You should be able to pick up an equivalent product to Deoxit from RS Components in the UK. Try this link:
Contact Treatment Products
The Electrolube EREML200F, EML Contact Lubricant (better) or Kontakt Chemie "Kontakt 60" (best) would be suitable substitutes at a resonable cost to you.

So far I have not found an equivalent to DeoxIT I have tried Electrolube and many others and they just don't work like DeoxIT.

A call to Caig should enable you to get the nearest agent that stocks the D5 and S5 aerosols. I found in my case it was a tool shop that specialises in the electronics trade. The two bottles shown above was what I use when giving contacts an initial clean and finish up with the D5 let that dry and then use the S5.
Regards,
K-BIKE

Well, I've sucumbed to the high pressure
'Forum Deoxit Sales Team'
and bought a bottle of D5. (From Russ Andrews).
So now all my electrical problems that I haven't got will all be fixed before they appear....... which DeoxIT? 723598
Actually, my 1975 Leak 2000 tuner/amp suffers from noisy switches and pots so that will be a good test.
Cheers, Paul.
