I have a simple lubrication contamination control tip that has been lost due to lack of training in our "Getter done!" world.
It's common sense really, wipe grease nipples off before and after you grease them.
Obviously, before to ensure you do not inject contamination into the process, and after to reduce the contamination that will accumulate on the grease nipple the the next yahoo that doesn't wipe it off can inject into the process, or is easier for him to wipe off.
I love your articles, please, keep up the good work.
