Default Re: Grease: How Do You Do It?

My father taught me a similar method, he called it "the bearing slap". A glob of grease in one palm and the bearing in the other hand. Open bearings facing the grease glob with index finger through the bearing supported by the thumb. Slap the bearing gently in your palm along the edges of the grease sliding the bearing along your palm packing grease between the bearings. Continue slapping and dragging while rotating the bearing around as many times as it take to pack the grease into the bearings until is squeezes out the other side.
If you have to force it there must be a better way
