Simple grease box

This is a very simple take on the grease box, I turned it on the lathe from a scrap of maple, then drilled an offset hole on the drill press. You can see the lid is a little thin, and broke once, I glued it back together. I fill it with mutton tallow. Hopefully this will get me into the GBOC (grease box owners club) an honor I have coveted for for some time.

Nice ‘application’ to the club Joe! Is that a metal liner? Thanks for sharing.

Pardon me for the ignorance, but what’s the grease for?

I use it to lubricate my plane soles. Mutton was traditionally used for wooden bodied planes. It has a pleasant smell, reminds me of a gyro.

Ah. Does it make your planes taste good too? ;-)

Thanks for the info.

I like the box by the way. Homemade utilitarian items have always pleased me for some strange reason.

Have your say...
