Acceptably original looking clips for a Tecalemit grease gun should be relatively easy to find.

There's a pic here...

Tecalemit grease gun, which one is correct? (post #2)


Cheers!
Glen

I just found out that Nick Acton broke his back in four places. So they are struggling at the moment. Bonni indicates that Nick is going to be all right.

I got the correct grease gun clips from Nick earlier this year. You can probably order them online but will have to be patient.

Avoid NH as a source.... Easily sourced elsewhere

SNG spring clips have a single mounting hole. Much, much cheaper than Acton but not correct. Probably not important to some.

I have installed the Acton spring clips on my original GB 2800 Tecalemit grease gun and they fit will. They have two mounting holes as originals.

One can source the clips from the UK directly. They are very cheap on an individual basis. But, with the supplier I found, Springmasters, there is a minimum charge ($190) plus shipping which makes it wildly unacceptable.

Drew in CA?
Shelby Parts?
Branda?

I would stick with folks that participate in the NH Cobra group.
Funny sounds like another ringer is funding his OOG participation.
Have you not seen the beware threads ?

To each their own.

I got mine from Nick about 5-6yrs ago, and they are perfect.

Well, I've been around here for quite awhile and I've heard stories, complaints about Nick. Hearsay is not admitted in a court of law so that's the only thing I can base it on. Over the years I've purchased a number of items and even some that he fabricated for me, all quality items. That's what I base my opinion on. I hadn't realized "Cancel Culture" had come to Club Cobra.

Well, John consider yourself lucky, its funny that the NH Club excludes and avoids contact with this business. He had us all bamboozled at one time!
Sorry if you dont recall, here is one victim which was not in NH. All the NH posters have ceased working with him as after this incident we all got whacked in one way or another. Ever see him at our monthly breakfast meetings, nope, hmmmm wonder why?
You can do what you like, funny he no longer trolls Club Cobra either?? At least under his known name which should tell you something....
Why not give advice, post, advertise etc... Its not a "cancel culture" deal when friends get taken for $$ its bad business, desperate times.
Rumor has it he is "trolling" higher dollar clients in the South, GA, at least until they figure him out.
Once there was CA client trying to get his car out of the grip of monthly fleasing $, I was told to my face "possesion is 9/10th's the law" which was when my ride started downward. Sad but true.

Watch out for Nick Acton!!

Note, the thread is "closed" as most were pulling a round about 180 at that time. Therefore, one cannot remove or change their perspective.
I will eat my words on this i suppose... I too was a victim.

Feel free to read the first few pages from my build if you are looking for more "stories": Alloy Hi-Tech Build

This guy stole thousands of dollars from me and left me a pile of useless parts. I would NEVER buy anything from him.
