Pouring into tight spots
Problem: Getting lubricants and other liquids into just the right spot to do their jobs is often close to impossible because of obstructions and limited access.
Problem: Getting lubricants and other liquids into just the right spot to do their jobs is often close to impossible because of obstructions and limited access. How can I reach that hard-to-reach spot?
Solution: Cut the bottom out of a plastic 1-qt motor oil bottle, and cut an inexpensive garden hose with the correct length to reach the machine reservoir. Screw the female hose connector on the mail threads on the bottle cap. Pour the liquid into the newly created bottle/funnel and the hard-to-reach problem is solved.
