I didn't suggest a "dab of solder"

The poster Coner did. I simply advised against it, for a similar reason to what you questioned.

The Circuit Works 7100 silver conductive grease would be something I'd be willing to try, but at over $61 per tube at Digi-Key, I'd have to see if I had other uses for it first.

I read a couple of articles on tuner refurbishing a few years ago. At least one of them suggested using silver grease on the variable capacitor's bearings (Not on the fins!). If I need silver grease for my tuners, then I'll have it to try on a fuse or two, but only on the ones in open clips. Trying to get that grease out of an enclosed fuse holder doesn't sound like a fun job to me.

Thanks for the head's up on the Circuit Works 7100.
