Grease went in, grease came out...

Well done. Now you can sew the "greaser" badge to your sleeve.

My primary ggun is unbranded, and gifted to me by an uncle in about 1970. It has performed faultlessly since then, so must be over 50 years old.

Another relative gifted me a Wanner around 1980, but despite the Wanner fanbase, I still prefer my unbranded ggun.

I use a Wanner gun from about the same period - much better than the more modern one I have.

No need to sew it on, it smears on your sleeve all by itself, much to the annoyance of swmbo who is worried about it transferring itself to other items of clothing hide

Today I also greased the nipples.

Three nipples easy work. One doesn't want to be greased. Some trys later - done.

And: after the BHM workshop in february this year today I also fitted some "BHMstyle" gaiters. Homemade from a old biketire innertube.

Could you post a pic?

Thanks
