Been doing way before I got into plumbing work... my dad always had that yellow Sexaur grease cans in the house and still carry one in my toolbox.

My cans are metal and if the lid gets squeezed and then put back on the can in a different position than it was bent a little bit,it makes my lid hard to remove. The tins are thin. Mine are anyway.

My grease goes in the threaded bait holder they use for wax worms. No worries.

The ice fisherman will know what I'm talking about.

Amen to the angle valves getting grease. I can't even turn the brand new ones very easily, before the water is even turned on to them, unless I grease the stem, on threads, packing washer , & packing nut. Then they work like they should, with ease. Can't believe Brass Craft don't put a pinch of grease on these.
