Jake, when you put new grease in your grinder. Don't fill it all the way up, be sure to leave room for exspansion when it heats up.

Thanks.. I never would have thought about that, I would have just cleaned everything then packed it full ... more is better right?

Thanks, I really didin;t think it expanded much. About how much room do I leave?

Fill it about 2/3. Be sure to pack around the gears.

It's hard to argue against a $3 grinder, but from my experiences, the cheaper grinders would frustrate me at a higher rate than they'd remove metal. They never seem to have even half the power of the others.

BTW, Black and Decker makes a good one that's EXACTLY the same thing as the DeWalt, but it's a lot cheaper. I happen to have the DeWalt though, because I caught a good sale on it. I'd not trade my DeWalt for 30 of the $3 ones.

About time you wandered in Engloid. What took you so long?

BTW, Black & Decker is an evil F R E N C H company. If they were a good US company I'd be filthy rich today. Those F R E N C H bustards ruined my opportunity to employ American workers to disassemble their small appliance plant in Brockport, and ship it along with the American workers to reassemble it in Camroon, because they wouldn't allow a former F R E N C H colony to develope economicly.

Black & Decker S.A. moved all those Brockport jobs to Mexico back in the 80s, and only sells product in the US.

(and you's guy's didn't think I knew good english)

Marko, U B rite!
WD 40 is kerosene based, not dihydrogen monoxide based.
The name WD 40 was derived from Water Displacer, and the 40 comes from it being the 40th formulation they tried till they got something that worked.

Default Grease and the Kiss principle.

Thanks for the endorsement Pilot.

The chemical name for kaolin is bentonite (clay) it is an aluminum based mineral and is excellent for higher temp applications.

Actually lithium based grease have only moderate water resistance. Most manufacturers add a polymer (PIB-polyisobutene) to improve water resistance. Any way I digress.

I recommend clean out all of the old grease and relubricate it with wheel bearing grease. Most wheel bearing greases are a NLGI #2 Lithium grease with extreme pressure additives.

Many greases of different types are incompatible and will result in the break down of the thickeners (grease structure) used .

Hey Franz,
Remember for whom WD-40 was invented?
