    Default Any American made manual grease guns?

    Not too long ago, I purchased a Lincoln manual grease gun. The last time I replaced the grease tube, the top wouldn't tighten correctly - it acted like the threads were stripped. Then, this morning, as I was greasing the fel, the top of the gun blew off. Yes, it was a mess - a nearly full tube of grease... So, is there a better made gun available. Looking at the Lincoln, the threads on the barrel are too shallow - I had not cross-threaded the parts.
    If only I'd known then what I know now...except none of this existed back then.

    I use a electric Milwaukee gun.

    I don't have any experience with the new grease guns. All mine are 30 or more years old, still work great.

    I ordered the Milwaukee and it arrived today - come to find out, it too is made in China. That said, it looks to be well-made. Here's hoping.

    I'm pleased with the Milwaukee. The barrel is heavy and the threads are good and full - unlike on the Lincoln manual gun that blew apart. Plus, I've got hand and kneeling issues that make the Milwaukee an even better choice for me. Thanks for all the help.

    I bought the Milwaukee rechargable grease gun a few months ago. So far I really like it. Supposed to pump 7-8 tubes of grease before it needs to be recharged. I don't like the fact it was made in China but the quality seems to be very high and comparable to my USA made Milwaukee tools.
