After a little cleanup with a soft toothbrush, is this similar to "Zinc Pest"? Not so sure I want to apply vaseline to the tabs, Anyone got some ideas????

I spray mine with WD 40, BUT it turns the corrosion dark grey, and you may be surprised how much corrosion is actually present. If you brush all the dust away you may end up with just the cotton inner core of the bullion cord.

Welll, you point and spray. :rolleyes:

Perhaps, a better way would be to apply it with a fine brush to the affected parts. Although it doesn't seem to affect the material. Drives off damp and coats the surface with a thin film, it does evaporate after a time and reaplication is needed. I havn't a clue what it does to the blacklight test. Its good for zinc pest as well and that fine surface dusting of corrosion you get on some badges (Especially tinnies)

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
