      On a scale of 1 to 10, typing paper is probably about 1000 grit, or so....so no problem. I uses mine all the time.....keeps the contacts nice and clean. MIlt

          The way I look at the strip issue is this. I have hundreds of dollars
          invested in my keys; a bug, straight keys and paddles. For me
          spending $5.00 on a contact strip from Vibroplex is worth it. No
          second guessing.

            Vibroplex's warning is for those dingle-brain people who take files to
            the silver, or rough sandpaper. You won't believe what people can do
            until you look at some of the hair-brained things people have done to
            their keys!
