as I explained to you before, there are many inconsistencies in your posts, your playing, understanding and now writing style. I think you are reading us very wrongly - if there was no emotion we would not bother at all.
Maybe really a troll just trying to play with TMers. I guess you do have an audience..................

Maybe. You wouldn't know. Maybe you are a troll rowuk we don't know?
An old school brass instrument repair man said take the valve out, put some Brasso on it, put it back in with the bottom of the valve into the bottom of the valve casing and GENTLY lap it in. Not too much.
As Brasso is a cleaning agent and mildly abrasive it gets all the crap or imperfections out.
Give the horn a good bath and clean with a snake, rinse it out to make sure it's spotless.
I did this on a Conn 80A cornet that had newly replated valves. The first valve was slow to return. This method worked an absolute treat, no more slow valves!
The key is to be gentle and don't overdo it, essentially you are just cleaning it and making sure the surfaces of valve and casing like each other.
You should NOT approach it as though you are abrading these surfaces although in reality that's what you're doing VERY slightly.
Cheaply made horns are another thing. I have seen some very dubious creations that do not even qualify as musical instruments. These should be totally avoided as they are beyond help and should be banned.
