 RE: Oiling

1)As Tom Ridenour writes in his educational article we should use vegetable oils since it is hydrophobic(do not mix with water or saliva). http://home1.gte.net/klarinet/articles/wood.htm
2)There are a few grade of almond oll. I use pure virgin almond oil of international oil co.(UK).
3)To avoid the oil to corride, I buy Vitamin E tablets and penetrate the tablet coverage(made of glyserin?) by a needle and pour oils inside several tablets.(This was advised by someone - maybe a repairman - in the Klarinet archive.)
4)As to how long should we dry up the instrument after oiling I have no information. But I leave it at a stand for full two days though in other time it may be a bad thing to do. Everytime, I oils my Selmer 10SII, I find it becomes very vivid, especially staccatto becomes easy. (I feel.)
