    Psssssst........Wanna buy a cheap grease gun?

    Tired of getting grease where it's supposed to go AND everywhere else?

    Go to the kitchen gadgets aisle and get a $3.99 Flavor Injector Syringe for meat. They're about 6" long.

    Cut off the sharp point just above the vent holes on the stainless steel needle and clean up the sharp edges with sandpaper. Now put your favorite grease in from the top (I just squeezed in some from a Park Polylube tube) It's really light and nimble and an inner tube valve cap fits on the end just right.Psssssst........Wanna buy a cheap grease gun?-img_0592.jpg

    I use dental syringes:

    Less than a dollar for one.



    I have one for each type of grease that I use, which looking at my board is 7.

    You can buy them online in packs of 4 or 8 or whatever for cheap. I find they work perfect.

    Cool. I was looking for one of those, but medical ones are really expensive. Never thought to look at kitchen gadgets.
    I use plastic medical syringes of different sizes (which are cheaper).

    Do you know if the needle on that is a standard medical thread type?

    Nice! I never thought of using the meat injector ones. I got mine from a local farm supply store. They have the syringes and a plethora of different size needles. I have used the smaller needles to inject grease into and nurse dried out bearings along for a while longer.

    Mine was on the close out rack at our grocery store or I never would have thought of it, $2.00 IIRC, works great. My grease, Lucas Marine, is the same color as yours.
