    Hey guys,

    Just thought I'd share this video as I know it will help many others as it will me. It's a video from the monette factory demonstrating how to clean and oil your valves.

    Welcome to Facebook

    Thanks,
    Andrew

    I dunno if you have to be a member of facebook, or a fan of the Monette page, but every player on this site needs to watch this video.

    You don't need to be on Facebook to watch the video.

    Maybe not "sage advice" but it's a really good, common sense walkthrough of cleaning your valves and valve casings.

    Considering what a valve job costs, correct oiling is pure common sense.

    I didn't watch the vid, but it has always made sense to me that the valves casings and valves need to be flushed out/off, and when I oil, I oil the valve generously from top to bottom, allowing the new oil to wash away sediment and grime - I do this over a towel or over a trash can. I also oil fairly often.

    I don't know if that was what was recommended, but it's what I have done for over 20 years and I've never really ever had any valve problems with any of my horns.

    Thanks Buck and GB I thought it asked for a sign in the first time but maybe I just dozed off.

    Oil valves before and AFTER you play.

    The "new" internet is like the "new" economy. Video = 1 frame per second at least the sound comes through, not in sync but if a video paints a good picture with words, it's a good one.

    The media of the future == AM radio folks.

    anyway, oil before and after.
