Joe, I've read posts a couple of times relating to the use of penetrating oil combined with torch heat to loosen stuck slides (not all posts here, nat.)
At first blush, combining torches and oil products seems to me to be an invitation to join the "Darwin Awards" (Tubist in serious condition after being shot in the stomach by a tuning slide following a mysterious explosion in a Sousaphone. Reports state that the tubist was reportedly "cleaning his weapon" at the time....):^)

Obviously, I'm missing something
