Grease Gun Modification Makes It Easy To Reach Narrow Corners
Abner Stoltzfus, Leola, Penn.: “Some of the grease zerks on my farm equipment are located in tight corners where I need a hose on the grease gun, and some are in narrow corners too small to reach with my hand and therefore require a solid pipe. I didn’t like having to take both kinds of grease guns with me all the time. So I unscrewed the hose from the pump and slipped a 3/8-in. dia., 8-in. length of conduit over the hose, and then screwed the hose back on. The conduit is just the right diameter to hold the hose tip solidly.
  “Whenever I need to use the hose I just slip the pipe back toward the pump to expose the hose. I started using this idea more than 2 years ago and haven’t found a grease zerk yet that I can’t reach.”
