Always popular, this Hardy little gadget is easily missed at the bottom of a tackle box or bag.
The Joint Lubricator and Container was an entirely new idea in the 1930’s.
Measuring 1-3/4” tall the outer casing is stamped”Hardy Bros. Makers Alnwick”. It was produced in both brass and nickel materials.
Pull off the top casing, push up the little stud exposing the Special joint or ferrule lubricant, in the case it’s green. Smear the joint, twist the ferrule parts around a few times coating the entire unit, then assemble and off you go.
The lube acts as a cleaner and lubricant prolonging the life of the joint.
Nifty little gadget with a value of £75-100.
