RE: Hickok 6000a test slide switch repair?

I don't think the contacts can be resurfaced. The need for frequent cleaning is an indication that the original plating has worn off. The base metal doesn't conduct as well, and it oxidizes quickly. Unless you want to drill out the rivets and have the contacts re-plated, I think new switches will be required. It's just one of the things that wear out in old gear.
