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)

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
