Do It With Your Hands; Don't Use A Tool

a: Packing grease in a bearing ~
b: the proper method of opening a beer

What: "The proper method of packing grease in a bearing is like the proper method of opening a beer: As long as grease gets in the bearing amongst all the rollers, it's good. There are bearing-packer tools that make this messy job easier and cleaner, but it's good to do it by hand also."
