    Got Grease?

    I've been in construction for almost 20 years. The other day I did a double take on this little tube, I never noticed it before. I wonder if Lucas gets a cut? Weird, wild, stuff.

    Fett grease??

    SO does this mean it is a grease derived from Fett (blood, mucous, earwax?) , or is this a grease for using ON a Fett, and if so, what for ? (lets NOT go there) ?


    Disgusting. I Know. I hate myself for thinking it. <shame>

    Yeah, me and a garrison buddy of mine were working in his garage one day and we noticed that on a little tube of grease - I think it was for an RC car...It had "grease" written in multiple languages. We just figured Fett was grease in another language.

    Funny stuff though!

    ItsThatGuy is right. Fett is swedish and means 'grease' or 'fat'.

    'Boba Grease' and 'Boba Fat', is how Fett's name has "sounded" to me since I was a kid...

    OK, i'm gonna totally nerd-out here(from my engineering background), but I think it could be for an electrical part, possibly RC.
    In the electronics world, we use "FET's" or "field-effect transistor's" in lots of boards. They get really hot, and these greases help conduct heat away from the part....

    OK, I will go back to my cave now, and play a video game, and imagine I had a girlfriend too....

    It's used on electric jackhammers and concrete drills. You put a some on the bit before you put it in the machine. I'm a supervisor for a construction company that builds high rises, so we use it quite regularly. The stuff works good.

    Hilti makes hammer drills ( for drilling concrete) and other power tools. The grease is for lubing the shaft of the bit where it fits into the chuck( the part that turns).
    P.S. Minds out of the gutter:o
