I recently bought an old Bencher paddle from an estate. It is dusty and the chrome has some discoloration. What is the best way to clean it?? What do I use??

Plain, old rubbing alcohol (Isopropyl) and a soft brush will do wonders for the unit.

Clean the contacts by drawing plain, white paper thru them.  Do not use a burnishing tool on the contacts!

Polish-up the chrome with a product called "Never Dull Magic Wadding", available in most hardware stores.

A light touch of oil on the spring, and you're done.

Have fun with it!
