I doubt WD40 is the best thing for the job. There are other chemicals that
are designed to clean metal.

There is a mailing list about old calculators called CALCLIST. I can get
you the relevant addresses. (I think I need to resubscribe too.) The
people there can give you an amazing amount of expert advice.
