Guys and gals, I came up in Architecture before CAD - and so, perforce, had to learn to draw. Over the years, I acquire a tool called an "electric eraser", which I have come to use as a cleaner of tiny parts, delicate parts, and parts where solvents might be inappropriate. There is NOTHING like it for the purpose.
I have no interest in this auction - I was looking, as I do on occasion, for more inserts and came across it. But this is an excellent price and for what is likely a lifetime supply of inserts. The shavings are non-conductive, light-weight, non-oxidizing, non-corrosive and blow or brush away easily.
NOTE: the green ones will peel paint off a board - BUT, micron-by-micron if one has a fine hand. So, a super tool for removing tough oxides without damaging the substrate. The others are softer, but have their best uses as well.
Fair Warning - I may just jump on this for the inserts...

We use Dixon Pink-N-Ink erasers in our shop for cleaning card edge
connectors, and small parts.
The ink side is mildly abrasive, the rubber side polishes.
No electricity needed - just a bit of elbow grease (as my father liked
Can't say if it would work in your application/shop, but for our small
shop that repairs both EM and SS equipment the Dixons' work very well.
