distributor and ordered P/N VB-942 end for my grease gun. It is a

replacement for the normal 'zerk' end on the business end of a grease

gun and fits the old "pin fittings". Cost is yet to be determined

from the Alemite factory. An obvious use would be either to put it

on the end of the grease gun pipe or hose OR to screw a zerk fitting

into it (1/8 NPT threads, female) and make the elusive "adapter".

The VB-942 has "wings" (no comments please) that make turning it to

secure it to the stationary pin fitting a bit easier but it comes

either with or without (I ordered one of each and forgot the part

number of the "non-wing" model but I THINK it was 504511). We shall
