    Nice site find. I don't have a single non-jittery paddle control in my entire collection.

    Nothing like freshly cleaned paddles. I cleaned about 6 sets of paddles like this, but I didn't use any special spray, just a cloth and some windex to scrub the carbon buildup off the connectors. I managed to clean 2 Drivers this way too, but if you haven't cleaned Drivers before, be careful, they aren't built the same. They are much more delicate, and the wires within will come loose and require careful reconnection.
