I think what folks need to know is that any kind of petrol-based lubricant, 
is going to be an attractant for dust, debris, etc. The only ones that may 
not (and I use that term loosely) is molybdenum and graphite. However, they 
may induce resistive action, which would not be desirable either. The trick 
is to use the minimum amount to get the most desired results. To paraphrase 
another ham off of another web page, "Mo oil is NOT mo betta!" Over 
lubricating will attract debris and coagulate. Ultimately making things 
Just my RFC's worth.

I've used it for a lot of things in the past with no ill effects, I use it
sparingly and attempt to get all the residue out afterwards.  It's saved my
you know what many a time...
