    Hetman Synthetic Oils

    Anyone have any feedback on these oils. My repair guy has recommended giving them a try on my 68 Silver Flair. I have been using Al Cass.

    Re: Hetman Synthetic Oils

    I would recommend them. I have used the regular and the light piston oil and they seem to work fine. I used AlCass for a long time but it would leave dicoloration / deposits on my valves when it broke down. Hetman doesn't seem to do this. Hetman also makes a really nice slide oil that works great for 1st and 3rd valve slides.

    I would echo what TM had to say. I switched from Cass a few years ago and have never had a problem. Cass worked fine on my old Bb, but the valves on the new (tighter) horns would slow and stick. I use Hetman classic on the Bb and Hetman light on all my other horns w/o any problems. I highly recommend the stuff.

    I hate that stuff! If I were you I would stay away NOBS. I used it for a while and the smell was cool but it made my valves look like a sewer. Green Sludge everywhere. Maybe it reacted to something but I thought it was awful. I have never had that kind of problem with any other valve oil

    I've used Blue Juice for a couple years now with great success. In fact, it is the only petroluem oil I have found that works well with my Lawler. Not to say others won't work, but Blue Juice makes my Lawler valves like lightning. I just recently got a bottle of Fat Cat oil. I have it on my Bachs right now, and it seems to work as well as Blue Juice.

    I have heard great things about Hetman, I just haven't tried it.

    Yes it is unscented. It smells like some kind of oil but no scent has been added

    Good for the horn, though......
