Grease Buster Looosens Up Frozen Fittings
Ordinarily, the fitting will either free up instantly, or you can repeat the process after the solvent has had time to work, says inventor-manufacturer Paul Michener. Once solvent flows freely into the fitting, you can then inject grease with a gun to displace the solvent.
Michener is a custom hay baler who came up with the idea last fall as a way to solve problems with grease fittings on knotters. "Plugged grease fittings are probably more common with farm equipment than with any other type of machinery because of the conditions it operates under and because it often sits idle so long," he notes.
Sells for $19, including postage and handling. Michener is looking for dealers and distributors.
