Grease Gun

Tecalemit No.621173 No.GB2802
Production date
Circa 1950s-1960s
Small pump style grease gun. The gun is made from a large bullet shaped body into which grease is applied. From the tapered end extends a shaft which has an indented tip. With pressure applied to the rear of the gun (which is a flat screw on cap) the shaft is forced up into the body of the grease gun, this in turn forces the grease out through the hollow shaft and through the tip which is designed to fit a grease nipple.
