Hi Dennis,thank you,I note that Deoxit D-5 is 75%petroleum naptha,so I reckon it should stay "wet" for a long while.I have laid out a test sample to see when it goes" dry".I will report if and when it does.

  FYI.  DeOxit is only conductive when wet.

    Hi all again,I  use Detoxit D-5 on the shaft/sleeve only,as it is very conductive and lubricates, to a lesser degree.I do not use Detoxit on the carbon element as it's conductivity will distort the linear or log tracking  ratio of  resistance per degree of arc .
    I have seen hydrocarbon based solutions in days gone by causing the carbon deposit to "float" off the substrait so the whole thing is ruined.This is particular with the older WE s-line pots .I have resorted to  removing the casing & manually cleaning the element with an earbud.
