Changing grease in Beaver Dam's
« on: Dec 10, 2003, 06:29 PM »
What kind of grease or oil is used when you repack the shafts on Beaver Dam tip ups?

I don't own any "Beaver Dam's" but I do have polars and I make it a habit to change out grease before every season and I would highly recommend HT's Blue Lube. Its pricey but it works, nothing more said.

You can get it on line at 877icefish.com and I have seen a  Walmart carry it now and again. Get your local sportshop to order it in. Much cheaper if you buy 1/4 or 1/2 lb tubs.

How do you get the grease in the shaft then?

Buy the small squeeze bottle, just poke the tip in and squeeze until it the lube comes out the other end. I bought a small bottle to get it in the tipup shaft and a bigger one that I refill it with, a little goes a long way.  :'(

You can also use white lithium grease. It's what I use. I just repacked all my Beaver Dams with it. I put it into a syringe and inject it into the spindle till it comes out the other end.
Good to -10 below, so they claim.

It doesn't hurt to take a shot of air and blow most of the old grease out before repacking.
