Actually, I was wondering why the female dents were being left out.
Penetrating spray all over and in thru lead pipe as well. Respray same areas after an hour or so. Heat (5 seconds with an alcohol lamp ) and wiggle and tap while heating. Repeat process. Most of the hard stuck slides have black gummy crap all over the slide. You can flush with acetone, MEK, or Methylene Chloride, or paint stripper to help break up the " gum ". I ain't never been beat by a corroded slide.
I always have lubed my tuning slide and 2nd valve slide with straight liquid lanolin. To my 1st and third valve slide I add valve oil to the lanolin, more oil on the third than the first.
Too, I use just a little lanolin with my trombone slide lube, but again straight on its tuning slide.
