WD-40 Cost me one time a crystal was cleaning a band switch and one drop 
fell on the crystal and I did not know it fired up the rig and it would 
not tune. Was looking and saw where it had dripped. I tried to get it 
out but it was no use and had to buy a new one. So when you are using 
anything that is oil base be careful.
