    Will, I don't recall off hand but I think it was just a plain ol' small-sized grease gun from a tractor supply store.
    The kind with the spring loaded plunger you pull out the back and puts pressure on the oil (grease) -- I may have
    modified the seal inside to keep oil from leaking back. I think just a few larger washers to keep the seal tighter
    against the tube wall?

    That said, I hardly ever pressurize the back end.. just pull the spring arm back and leave it locked. (there is a caulk-gun style lock)
    If used "upside down" gravity will feed the pump in the head.

    AK - thanks! I'll have to remember that vise grips one.

    Bravo again nice job on both the Vid and the support - and just enough special effects antics to let you know its Tony


    every time I come across one of his vids im like - damn I don't have 10 or 15 minutes - but damn it's Tony, click...

    The only improvement in the entire Vid that I seen would be if he had a set of vise grips setting next to the block of metal - then the vise grips are grabbed and you hear the clamping sound - then the high pitch singing lol

    Tony,

    I'm curious what the oil/grease gun was that you were using at the end to show the zerk fittings pumping into the oil channel you cut with the little burr into your bronze bearing? I've been looking for something like that for my ancient, oddball vertical mill (Rockford MV100, if anyone cares).

    Thanks,
    Will

    Just caught up with this. Looks really good. The way you do it makes it seem easy. Is it really as quiet as it sounds? I'm used to my machines sounding like a jackhammer!

    100% agree....those are the ones to collect, they are slightly more of a pita to sharpen (if you have a horizontal, you'll want a T&CG )

    at 10:28 the milling vise being used to hold the bushing appears to have a 4 way indexing fixed jaw . What make of vise is it I have never seen such a tool.
