Why not contact MFJ who builds theirs as well as Oren Elliot Products plus Multi Tech Industries who builds "big" ones.

I don't think Penetrox is a good idea for a roller inductor. As far as I know, Penetrox is only conductive if put under pressure.

I would suggest one of the CAIG DeOxit products, e.g. DeOxit 5.

Kind of reviving this thread since I have a roller inductor that was acting a bit flaky, so I took it out and gave it a good cleaning in my ultrasonic cleaner. No lubes left on it now and it's very clean. So, what is general consensus, DeOxit D5 is Ok to use to use on the roller? Unsure how much of a lubricant it is, but I know it's a great contact cleaner.
