    What, where you thinking of this? image.jpg

    The dump slide is a slide on the end of the third valve slide. You can keep the slide that needs to move locked in, and remove the dump slide to remove spit. Here's a Mendez with one. image.jpg

    Yeah, I know, I was just making a bad joke because Peter commented on players not knowing that they had one............:oops:

    Though playing Schilkes mostly I usually use the 2/V slide as a "dump" slide while depressing the 2&3 valves (no water key or dump slide on 3/V slide).......

    I didn't think it was a bad joke - bad jokes are good in my world.
    But it is still fun to pull a dump slide on a horn, and the owner is amazed that it's there... that is even more funny.

    I know this is an old thread but, I like to use tiny black vinyl automotive vacuum caps I get from my local auto parts store. They cost cents, need to trim off a bit if they are too long. Just thread them on...don't look too bad either DSCF6678.JPG

    I always lost my stop rod nuts. I tried locktite, locking washers between the two - never seemed to get much joy. This sounds like a much better solution. I don't have any trumpets with stop rods. The Monette elastic band has worked for me on the Monettes, Bach C, Selmer D/Eb and others since the mid '90s.

    What a great idea! You should contact Bach about your design. Now if there was some way to gold plate them...
