    Default Lubrication

    Before all the lube jokes start I'm not looking to lube up some poor labourers ring
    Recently started my own firm a few months ago things are going better than expected problem is lubing up fittings has become quite time consuming if been using a brush and engine oil and winding them up and down.
    I know many firms throw all the fittings in a bath and use scaffeze which I personally think is a load of ****.
    In the old days my guv used to use hydraulic fluid that was just messy. Also a couple I know used a oil and diesel mix.
    What are the preferred methods some of the firms/owners on here use

    As you load your wagon bigtone, give your fittings a spray of scaffeze and as you use them your servicing them. And do the opposite when striking, it will save you time and money in the long run as you havn't got pay some fecker to service them for ya.

    Scaffezze is complete rubbish m8 as it evaporates too quickly.
    arden chemicals or lubetec sell a product called cliplube (£52 for a 25lt drum) & in my opinin one of the best value products on the market. Put it in a pump gun &spray the fittings in the stillage or on the back of the wagon ..job done.
    if you ever get some really bad rusty ones put them into soak in a plastic tube of water with a 20%mix of caustic soda that cleans em up- flush them with clean water from a hose & then leave to soak overnite in cliplube hey presto new fittings

    Cliplube is what we use Den , like you and SP say when we strike and put fittings on lorry they get sprayed , then overnight it soaks in and by the morning they are in a first class condition and ready for use .
