Subject:
grease fitting won't accept grease-fix?

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
This problem must be common for those who work on machinery but I have not faced it before. The blower I use for dust extraction from planer has two pillow blocks with self centering bearings with grease fittings. I have greased them before, maybe when it was warmer. Today they need it and I can not get grease to flow into either of them with my pump grease gun. I heated with a heat gun without success (it is cold and I only got the fitting up to 70 degrees (estimated)).
