First off, a neck should not be so tight that it need grease. If you REALLY mus, use lithium whit grease in a tube. Take the horn and have the neck fitted. If it is just a little tight or dirty, clean the neck AND body retainer with some wet #1000 emery paper or higher. Use some silver or metal polish to smooth it out. It should fit like Buttah!

I have actually used talc on flute tenons to polish down the area. Afterall, it is just a very fine metal substance. Tenons get dirty from everything as your dirty little paws tend to touch things.
