This invention relates to the art oi ‘lubricating t“ Aas shown in Fig. I and. downward pressure bearings 'and in particular to a device fôr'paclnng applied with `the palm of the hand to the pad t roller bearings, ball bearings and the like with a, at the upper end of `the plunger il.

Ball bearings 'are often ci sirrjii-A ' placed and, is forced upward through the open lar. construction, but have balls instead of rollers. îrings between the rollers, cage and body member 101 .In the past, it has' been the practice' to lubricat'e -of the roller bearing o as will be apparent to w certain of these bearings by _means of grease or . those skilled in the art. It should be noticed semi-solid lubricant. ille usual method has been g that the spring il is of _suñicient strength to' ensure to vattempt to work this grease in betweenv the l body and the cage, but as will lie-apparent this that _the bearing does not rise from the base upon the downward movement of the plunger d. can only be done inefiectively. in the case oi , _automobile iront wheel bearings, this has often resulted in damage owing to lack of lubricant Bvmeans of the well,- smaller roller 'bearings M in which the body protrudes more from the cage ‘can be serviced, as the angle of the wall of the - under severe weather conditions. _It has also well 'is such that the cage is contacted instead of beenI suggested to lubricate these bearingsby » 20 means of various packers, but these have not the body.

The cage thus acts as. a seal pre venting the lubricant from being forced betweenl the face 2 of the base and the roller bearing. The lower face of the head l is shaped to ensure 25 contact with the rim of the central opening in thebody of a bearing regardless of whether or not the operator positions the plunger and guide in an exactly vertical position over the bearing. By means of the bearing packer described, it is [email protected] possible to readily force lubricant of stiif con sistency in between the rollers of the bearing in an expeditious manner.
