I meant to add my BiNaK experience. I recently had a really good ultrasonic cleaning done on my euph, and thought that a good time to give Binak a try. So I did. And the results were terrible, for me. I thought that something must be wrong, so I took a degreaser to the valves and casings, cleaned it well, and tried again, using just a bit of Binak. Same problem... unacceptably sluggish valves. I mean, really quite slow. I have no idea why, but it wasn't from mixing with any other kind of oil, and I don't think it was from over-application. I didn't have the will to continue experimenting, thought, so I cleaned the valves off again and switched back to Hetman. Strange, though... anyone else seen really sluggish (we're talking Log Cabin brand) valves with Binak???
