Spraying lubricant at close angles
« on: July 01, 2018, 03:38:32 PM »
So simple almost didn't want to mention this. I needed to apply some penetrating lube inside an opening with nuts directly below the opening. Normally I just spray the heck out of area and hope the lubes settles down where it's needed. Today I stuck the nozzle from an empty can on the end of a full one and the spray shoots straight down ::)

Neat idea, Thanks. I hope I remember it when I need it.  :o

Ed Believe it or not, I just did that last thursday. Was trying to adjust the tailgate on that '69 Elcamino but the bolts were stuck. My can of rust buster was low and wouldn't spray up. Went across the street and got a new can and still couldn't work around the reverse light bracket. Grabbed the old nozzel and stuffed it on the end of the new tube and pointed head up. Wasn't sure it was going to spray thru the old head, well what do you know, it worked!
