 Vegetable Based Oils and Vitamin E
Author: paul

I've heard of the vegetable oils getting rancid smelling after a while unless they are treated with Vitamin E. The particular oil that I used was Vitamin E enriched already. The other part of the story is that if you do apply bore oil, be very sparing with it. Apply an extremely thin coating, just enough to get the wood to slightly sparkle under bright light. The only place where you should put a fairly thick (but still very small amount) of oil is inside the bore to paint a waterway for condensation to avoid the side trill keypads and toneholes, especially the C#/G# tonehole. This may help to keep your clarinet from gurgling with water condensation. See the reference to the "Water In The Holes" topic in another area of this BBS for more information.
