In Reply to: RE: Men, Always Clean Your Pins... posted by Jonesy on September 06, 2020 at 07:18:45
...you're very persistent about pin/socket cleaning ;), and certainly you were right. This was just a good illustration of what we might put inside the socket if not cleaned, plain and simple.
Interestingly, a few gold-plated pins had much more dirt on them than their regular counterparts. How do you clean gold pins?
Clean gold pins very carefully with contact cleaner or Isopropyl Alcohol only. Depending on the integrity of the gold plating, something like Nevr-Dull can actually remove the gold.
If the gold is starting to flake off really bad, it's best to remove the gold altogether. Who knows what's going on under the plating. Cleaning regularly will keep the pins from oxidizing, much like the gold did.
