    Thanks @Khassy!

    I knew about the catsup trick for copper, but the lemon/salt for brass is one I didn't know about. Why buy more stuff when you already have it at home...

    Mother's aluminum/mag polish is good stuff, it will also remove the fog from your headlights.

    Works great on wheels, car part's etc. but I won't use it for my vape gear due to it's petroleum based and toxic.

    vasoline is petroleum based and is good for chapped lips ;) Wright's and mothers has the same health hazard rating on the material data safety sheet (1-slight)
    As long as you wipe off the excess and don't lick your mod (as tempting as that is sometimes)
    Red rouge buffing compound with a dremmel buffing wheel is great as well.

    Still won't trust it, Wrights is made to clean cookware so I trust it. Plus no solvent smell ;)

    I use Wrights for copper and blitz silver polish for everything else.
    After I polish I wipe everything with a damp cloth to remove any excess.

    Brass mechs smell so bad to me that I welcome the Mothers polish smell :)

    I have 4 brass mechs but will buy no more brass mods at all.

    Yep have a squonk mod that I have shelved because it has an unplated brass center Pin.
    It is not only smell, it is taste as well.
    Horrible.

    So I have never even thought of getting a copper or brass atty.

    When I started vaping about 5 years ago, I didn't know about how brass would affect the taste of e-liquid. I quickly found out about the nasty taste and smell. From that point on, I always looked at the 510 to see if it was brass and if it was coated to avoid that metallic taste.
