Ahhh salt and lemon juice .Thats what Ive done with most of my lasers and it works fantastically. Due to the low thermal conductivity of most of the thermal greases and epoxies however, it probably still isnt as good as a direct press heat sink (ie without module) of Al or better still Cu. Wrt tarnishing if you are only talking about the module its not really an issue; your sweat doesnt really come into contact with it and it is hidden behind the focus adapter.
I do clean the modules before I use them though, in a salt and lemon juice mix prior to use. :beer:
Simply classic and MUCH cheaper. Better than my suggestion.
