    No problems... thus far anyway.

    I use on a multitude of things with great results... in fact... I find it sometimes a bit "light"... wished it was almost not so watered down and a bit thicker.
    It is petroleum based, I would never use it, it costs over $400 to replace cables on excal.

    "Many things can affect the life and performance of electrical cables, oil is one of the most damaging. Used as a coolant and lubricant in many industrial and infrastructure settings, oil can inflict molecular damage on the polymers used for cable insulation and jacketing. If ignored, oil damage to cables can be severe. It will ultimately result in cable failure, downtime and replacement costs."

    AARC, all I am doing is warning you, I worked for Minelab for 3 years, repair center for 5 years, telecommunications for over 40 years, you dont put petroleum based products on cable insulation, we had excals that came in that had petroleum based silicone used on cables and it destroyed the insulation.

    More than even using any kind of spray is keeping the machine stored in reasonable temp. DONT store it in a garage where that isnt climate controlled. Constant heat is the death of rubber even worse that UV.

    I used to have my coil cable protected with the spiral wrap they sell everywhere. Its going to add some weight n resistance but its better than replacing a worn out cable. A little electrical tape to get it tight and voila. Heres an example link .
