 Re: Sticky first octave pad
Author: michkhol

After removing the key, cleaning the residue off the insert and the pad, cleaning the screw, oiling and adjusting the spring all is back to normal, thanks a lot!

However have a few questions about what to use for cleaning and oiling.

Cleaning.
I used isopropyl alcohol but I guess it is not the best solution. Or is it?

Oiling. I have
- Sewing machine oil
- Silicone oil
- Labelle 107 oil
- Home Depot multipurpose oil
- Various kinds of motor oil
Can use one of those, or it should be something more specific?
