Greaser

Hey guys,

How about a couple of photos of the greasing operation utilizing the GREASER. Do you remove and then replace the shields or is the grease forced in around the shields??? Two or three photos showing the greasing operation would be neat.

I started greasing old bearings from the scrap box just to get the hang of it, it really is very easy though. Another good gadget.

no, no shield removal.

just put the bearing in the V shaped well
and PUSH.

It's important to use the right grease
though.

I've had good luck w/ the EMB grease.

I saved this truly nasty pinion bearing
this weekend. Couldn't believe the
amount of dirt coming out of the bearing.
Now its smooooooth.

Z11355 is right - DO NOT remove shields before putting them in the greaser. I personally will remove the shields sometimes but that's only if I'm applying the grease by hand with a syrenge which alleviates the cleanup of excess grease, but is offset by the additional time and care required to do this. I've noticed over the last several years that more and more of Miniature's bearings are coming as sealed bearings which means the greaser is the only way to get additional grease into the bearing.

I use the greaser on all new bearings and regrease after every upgrade(read crash) opportunity.. I use the Bosch FT1v27 grease distributed by Robbe. never had a bearing failure since starting this method several years ago.
