 Re: Sticky first octave pad

Have the key removed, the lower 8ve vent insert and the pad cleaned and degreased as well as the spring tension beefed up (more of a curve put into the flat spring). Also have the rod screw cleaned, polished and the old oil cleaned out from the lower 8ve rocker key barrel.

If it's been happening more during low humidity levels, then have the key barrel shortened by a tiny amount to be sure the key will still function when the pillars pull in. Make sure any burrs on the ends of the key barrel are removed so they won't catch on the rod screw when it's fitted.

Chris.
