Wayne, not sure if the design of the CTC-5 tuner allows it, but if I'm not sure I can get a dial cord taught enough I'll often add a spring at one of the anchor points to take up the slack.

I've had WD-40 work fine as control and tuner cleaner. Some hate the practice and are scared to death of it. I'm sure there are some risks of damaging wafers. It is one of those things I don't like to do when I have a can of the right stuff on hand, but if lube is needed or I'm in a pinch and don't have proper cleaner I'll use it.

Pencil erasers make good contact cleaners...Especially the white, soft drafting erasers....Even when I have the right cleaner I often use those as scrubbing pads, and they do a good job of removing the tarnish that the cleaner softens/polishing the metal.
