Back in November 2012, I got wind of a chain lubrication device called the Grease Ninja. Seems like I watched a youtube video of it, and thought it was worth a try, especially at only $15.
I got the impression that Tom, owner of Grease Ninja (and maybe My Space?
) was a start-up who had a good product that was not just another 'better mouse trap'.
I'm really glad I bought it, and can't believe I waited so long to try it out. The only reason is because I was procrastinating rigging the apparatus to the spray can.
That was easily tackled in about 3 minutes.
You guys and gals, this thing is a no-brainer!
This simple little plastic block is engineered just right to do exactly what it's supposed to. It comes with various straws to fit different size spray nozzles, that’s handy! And it allows you to hold the can straight up for when your spray can is almost empty. The Philips screws: take them out and blow air or WD40 through to clean all the ports. This is a well thought out design. imo.
I think I'll make back the $15 this year in saved (premium high priced) lube. The first time you use it, you'll see how easy it is to get adequate coverage without ANY overspray and no more than 5 or 6 drops of waste.
My endorsement is completely voluntary - I have no interest in Grease Ninja.
They just make a product that really works and is simple, fast, and very cheap.
- It takes a few seconds to figure out to turn the wheel moderately slow.
- This is all the spill I had. Next time I'll have half that or less.
- My chain is a 520, this picture gives a visual of how well the ports line up with the Orings.
They offer another size for 525 or 530 chains. Even bicycle chains. If I was still mountain biking I'd get one for it too.
