  • Where to buy food grade grease

    Im rebuilding Silvias leaky steam wand and the o-rings and washer just arrived in the post. What I dont have is any grease ... does anyone know where I can get some suitable grease for the job? (I work in Camberwell / drive home to Preston).

    Thanks in advance.

    If you are near a Jaycar, they sell tubes of it for about $15

      Your best bet is Jaycar Coburg Sydney rd or Thomastown Settlement rd.
      Or Blackwoods sell it in larger quantities I think your nearest store is in Sydney rd Campbellfield.
      Hope this helps

        Bunnings has it too, in the plumbing department (at least they have in Port Melbourne).

                    Hi Ben, I also found it, I just walked a few isles, think it was near the teflon tapes and sealing compounds. Didnt take that much notice of what it was close to and am not sure that all Bunnings have the same layout.

                    Sorry, Steve :-/

                        Can I use the silicone lube for my o-rings on the stainless bolts that hold my boiler together so they don't seize or do I need a special "anti-seize" lubricant.

                          Lubricant should work.

                          The problem with stainless threads is generally galling, which in turn can lead to seizing. Galling occurs when friction overpowers the oxide film on the stainless and it shears off, exposing the softer metal underneath.

                          It follows that reducing the friction on the threads reduces the chance of galling:

                          Make sure the threads are well formed, clean and lubricated. The bolt and its nut / tapped hole should turn easily by hand. If it doesn't, check the threads. If the bolt or nut threads are malformed, buy new bolts and nuts. If the hole thread is malformed re-tap it.

                          Make sure the parts fit together properly and that the bolts can be threaded almost home by hand. If the bolt is being threaded against a force (eg pulling the parts into line) this greatly increases friction.

                          Get them threaded almost home by hand then nip up the last bit with a hand spanner. Going by hand slows you down, less speed = less friction. If you need to use a power tool to turn the bolt stop and figure out what you are doing wrong.

                            G'day mate...

                            Better off grabbing a tube of Copper Cote or Never Seez from your local Supercheap for these...

                            Mal.

                              It is generally not recommended to use a copper based antiseize on stainless, nickel is preferred. This is because copper is anodic to stainless by about 0.25V (depending on stainless grade, the better the stainless the higher the delta V).
