    Just wondered whether anyone other there has experience with Tech-oil. It's produced by David Braun out of Lake Elmo, MN, who is a former corporate scientist at 3M company. His objective was to produce an oil that doesn't dillute with water....thereby significantly reducing the frequency of required oil applications. I've been using it for several years with tremendous success....despite the cost of over $10 per bottle. I know (according to the producer) that Charles Schluter uses (or used it) too. So...has anyone compared it to any of the newer high-tech oils? I've found it effective on Bach, Schilkes, Getzens and Eclipses.

    Thanks, Dave Brown

    no one ever responded to this post, I used it for a few years (one bottle, applied once a month) and stopped earlier this year. Anyone have any thoughts on it now?
    (not oils in general, just experience with it, I don't think we need another this valve oil is best)

    Can't say, but personally I've gone back to Ultra Pure. Great stuff!
