JMOR, Thanks to you Tom and LB! I was just releasing pressure about the frustration of buying a designed to fail piece of cr@p and getting what I payed for.

A tube of grease usually lasts me about a year. I think I can make a close fitting washer on the end of a rod to push the grease from the tube into the gun and avoid much mess. Understand I am cheap and stubborn, pretty much in that order.

If I make do it will remind me to buy quality next time. Who'd a thunk something simple like a grease gun could be too hard to manufacture correctly. I wonder if WallyWorld pays extra to never give a sucker an even break.

Small word. Me too.

I got a $20 special at tsc. It broke in a day or two.

I put the tube from the bottom cap end first. Then I gingerly get the rubber started with a flat screwdriver. Then pull like heck to compress the spring and screw the cap on.

Go through 5-6 tubes a year. I'll just deal with it.
