Stan, I wasnt aware that OEP quit production, I used to buy many some years 

Another place to check is Cardwell Condenser who is now part of Viking and 
they still make the old Johnson 229 series..

Hi Carl,

MFJ said they use SAF-T-EZE anti-seize.

Oren Elliot no longer makes roller inductors. They said they stopped selling 
them to MFJ around 20 years ago and MFJ makes their own roller inductors

5. Bert VE3NR 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. 73 Stan KM4HQE Amps mailing list Amps at contesting.com
