 Re: your personal bore-oil concoction?

Back in the 80s, both Larry Naylor and I were experimenting with oils and the proper mix of different oils to get decent results with wooden clarinets. I was here on the east coast and he was in Colorado, but when I read about his work, I had to admit he was leagues ahead of anything I was doing.

I used mostly olive oil, put some on the outside, or the inside, gave Buffet clarinets a warm bath in it, all sorts of things. The mix I liked the best was 2 parts olive, one part almond, Larry was putting liquid vitamin E to his to help with absorption.

When I gave any clarinet a warm bath in the oil, the end result was to get oil back out, the clarinets had a very nasal, small tone to them after so much oil. Oiling the inside was plenty, that mix soaked in pretty well over night so there was nothing to clean off later.

I'm pretty sure if you google Naylor winds or call him, you can get incredible details on his work, both on oiling and custom wind repair. He has done some things for me (woodwind repair) and his work is terrific.

The doctor and I spoke several times about his oil, it works VERY well. He would never tell me what was in the bottle!
