Your next job will be to learn how to hook up a grease gun without getting grease in your eyes or your clothes. It can be a little tricky if you’re not familiar with guns. There are two different types of these tools that you can hook them up to. The first type is called a non-standard hookup which you can use with most guns. The second type is a standard hookup that is used on all guns.
Time required: 8 minutes. Step-by-step instruction: How to hook up a grease gun without getting grease in your eyes or clothing: Using your air release, pull the trigger of your gun. Once the gun starts moving, it will make a popping noise that will allow you to know that you’ve hooked the gun up to your air supply. Use your air release again to cock the gun once the oil pressure is enough. This is the starting point of your grease gun maintenance. You will need to do this over again to keep your gun running properly.
What happens next? Your next step is to clean the grease gun’s handle using a rag. Make sure you get all the crud off the handle and take a moment to wipe the grease gun down. If you ever find yourself with greasy fingers and no rag, pick up a vacuum cleaner and clear out any gun oil residue or dirt that might have gotten on your handle. Make sure you wipe down the entire handle to get all the crud off.
Now you will want to try feeding the greasy lubricant (grease) into the air release valve on your grease gun. If you can’t seem to get the grease gun working, you may need to try different lubricants before you find one that works. Once you find one, simply crank the valve all the way until you feel some resistance. Then simply hold the plunger over the top of the oil container and push it down until you hear the metal clicks. This shows that the seal has been damaged and another round of grease will be necessary to complete the process.
Some tips that you might find helpful in learning how to load a grease gun include using a propane torch, mixing some lighter fluid and lighter cotton balls and finally, putting some petroleum jelly on the plunger. These tips are great for those who want to make sure their guns always run smoothly. They also provide a means to prevent damage to your gun that can occur if you were to use an old-fashioned oil brush to grease your gun.
When you are learning how to load a grease gun, it is important to make sure that you have all the proper tools and accessories. You also need to make sure that you understand the proper procedure for greasing your gun and how to ensure that your gun is properly greased. In order to get the best result, you should consult the owner’s manual of your particular type of gun. If possible, try to follow the instructions for your specific model.
Another step in learning how to load a grease gun involves knowing how to make sure you have the correct air release. There are two screws located on the bottom of your greaser. One of these screws is equipped with a brass rod that attaches to the top of your greasing container. The other screw is attached to the bottom of your grease gun’s air release. When you have these two screws secured, you can now insert your brass tool into the lower part of your greasing container’s lid and turn it upside down.
Finally, the last step in learning how to load new grease cartridges is to place your plastic cap over the nozzle of your grease gun’s air release and slowly but forcefully pump the air release and pop the plastic cap. After you have done this, you should now have a fully loaded gun that works properly. After you have completed all of these steps, you will be able to load grease into your gun and ensure that your gun works as good as new when you are using it for extended periods of time.
