    This might be one of Dave’s posts you were looking for on how to care for a brand new horn.
    its by Dave Werden but actually on TubeNet

    This post in Dave’s blog is also very good:

    Doug Elliott - 102 rim; I-cup; I-9 shank

    Thanks Rick...just got the chance to read your post. Both of Daves' posts about horn maintenance are great to know. I'm paying more attention to the valves after playing the horn each time now. It all makes sense. Interesting about the "milk" method of old times. I don't think I'll take it to that extreme, but I like Daves' method -pouring a little valve oil down the leadpipe and blowing it through the horn.
