I'm a member and didn't even know it. :oops: From the looks of it, I have the fewest posts of all members.

This discussion has been focusing on what happens when the switch is on. It is just as important to consider when it is off.

A non-dielectric grease will contribute to leakage, either through the circuit or to ground. Even dielectric grease will do it after it gets enough contamination, but the other grease is worse.

My experience has been leakage is as big a problem as poor contact has been. I have used both types of grease on switches. Given both aspects, I generally prefer dielectric grease. Note that I said generally. Just today I was working on something with a couple big slip rings and used Lubriplate.
