Default Re: Looking for seller of Penrite steering box lube

No "0"s are involved, because the standardized National Lubricating Grease Institute (NLGI) does not rate "home brewed mixes".

On a more serious note:
Only a few months ago, maybe late last year, the Deere Corn grease was not to be found anywhere. Prices went though the roof. I saw a single grease gun cartridge selling for over 40.00 on eBay (ePay). I'm not sure why the product just disappeared for several months, but who's to say it wont happen again. So stock up, or find alternatives.
