When packing a grease gun tube with the spring pulled back and locked do not try to tap the grease in by banging the tube on the bench.


That is all.

I only use the grease gun once a year because only my aircraft's wheels have nipples.

Bet you grinned at 'nipples'. :D

It only hit the wall Col. In a great, sticky, greasy splat that slowly slid to the floor.

Bit like after one of your lie-downs. :D

We've all done it at some time I'm sure. It's a bugger getting the grease back in the tube. :lol: :lol:

I worked for a tight git many years ago who only bought grease in buckets and the blokes had to fill the guns. I bought a box of a dozen cartridges, which caused the 3rd world war, but even he could see the sense once shown how easy it was to swap cartridges.

He then made the poor sods refill the empty cartridges from the buckets. :roll:

I used to love the bit of stick in the tub which was normally an old bit of kindling and would occasionally let little splinters break off and jam the grease gun.
Grease buckets were the gift that kept on giving. 8) :?

Our boys moan like hell if I buy cartridges that have a ridge around the top of the cartridge which ends up getting pushed down into the guns tube, then when you come to get them out the ridge holds fast on the end of the threaded bit. This point is where the daft or fearless put a digit into the hole and try to pull the cartridge out.....................................then the plunger rod slips out of its notch which rapidly pinches said digit :lol:

Answer to getting them out is to put a long 16mm bolt in the vice so you can hook the cartridge hole over the bolt head and yank it out- or buy the type of gun that allows you to push the handle in with its endcap and popping the tube out, again though, its easy to get a digit between the handle and tube as you push it in!

Best thing was the 20kg buckets and buy the great pump or the top of them.

The spot in Essex used to grease the discs (2 sets of 6mtr) twice a day with cartridges, usually 3-4 cartridges in morn to displace and do correctly and another 2/3 in afternoon depending on what land you were on. The old guard loved this as you could rack up 2 hours of work and not do anything, we bought the buckets and got it down to 20-30 minutes in the morning disc and press and similar in afternoon, and nearly double the disc life as you used what was needed instead of what you could be bothered to do.
