    Good Lord it worked! I recently bought a quality grease gun & I was sure that the screwed on thingy that goes on the nipple was one piece. It took 2 pairs of visegrips to defeat 'the gorilla's best effort', but now the knurled end loosens/tightens just fine. Back in my Navy days we used one with a quick-release, like you use with a common garden hose these days.

    This is one GREAT site!

    Hello;

    In 59 while stationed in Texas with the Air Force I bought a super duty Sears/Craftsmen hand operated grease gun. It did fine into the 90's then a bought a Harbor Freight Air operated, one pull=one shot. That was a nice upgrade until it came time to fill wheel hubs after installing bearing buddies. Lord Have Mercy!! I wore out both trigger fingers. After doing one hub with three more to go Down the sandy no brick road to NAPA. Luck was with me. They had the commercial grade Rapid Fire model on sale. Buying it was one of the few smarter things I've done.

    Good luck, nicholas

    You mean I've been wrong all these years! If I hold the nozzle straight on to the zerk it ain't comin off, but tilt it sideways and off it drops..... Never had any problems as long as I could get at the zerk with either my straight or 90 degree gun.

    No joke - There's a right and wrong way to use an adjustable wrench, and it I hate to see it when someone's using one the wrong way.[/QUOTE]

    Adjustable wrenches make great hammers for putting cotter pins into small holes.

    Yep. As the old adage goes,"when you've only got a hammer, everything looks like a nail."

    Well I already admitted it on a recent thread I started but might as well add my name officially here too!

    I finally broke down and bought a decent grease gun. Alemite 500-E Heavy-Duty Grease Gun. It's a manual one. What a difference, the nozzle adjust very easily. I can put it on a zerk, twist it tight and pump away, untwist it and off the zerk no problem. Purges very well too.
