Whether it's worth the price or not is a matter of opinion.
Can I use D5 on tube sockets and tube pins? Also on cassette heads?
I would imagine the sockets and pins would be fine. Just make sure they are completely dry.
As for the tape heads, highest % of isopropyl alcohol you can find (91% or better) and cotton swabs. If you have easy access to the heads, camera lens tissue (I feel) does a better job cleaning.
If you watch YouTube, there are some who spray it all over, everywhere. I call them as "restorers by can".
Does all Deoxit have the same active ingredient? Like if I don't have one type on hand, does it make sense to substitute another?
Depends? I generally use the green can w fader lube on pots and rotary switches. cleans and lubes in one step, but not the best for everything. Definitely not anything you don't want to remain a tad "greasy."
The secret to Parts Express is ordering $100 or more to get free shipping. AFTER you've used the constant supply of promo codes for 10% off or more of your total order. They sell everything except snake oil. Well, not much snake oil anyway. Best place to buy CL2 12 ga speaker wire ever.
"Honey, I am out of deoxit, but I need to also get this subwoofer driver to get free shipping on the order."
