Silicon lubricant sealing

Back to the Maintenance, Repair and Customization Room

Hello all,

Anybody else use a sealant on plastic and metal combs against brass reed plates? Maybe a gastket would be a better solution, but I put on a very very thin bit of silicon lubrication grease on the comb where it meets the reed plate to help make a better seal. This is haynes silicon lubricant. Food grade. Got it for my kegs and homebrewing, but seems to work ok with this aplication. I am not referring to sealing wood combs here btw.

also, does this forum have an easy way to add links so people can click them?

Cheers,

Walter

The silicone should be fine if it doesn't begin to migrate into the reed slots when you draw.

To insert a link people can click, type the name of the link i.e. BlowsMeAway. Select the name and then click the "linked chain" icon in the editor window. Type in the URL in the space provided, and specify any other options you might like (you don't have to specify anything but the link) and click insert. It should then look and work like this:

I've been known to put fish aquarium silicone on chromatic mouthpieces.
