A new gun with adapter will work for sure.  If you want one for looks, this would be a better choice

It would be era appropriate.

Thanks TerryB for the quick reply.

I want to get him one to be able to use it on his car. We are in Australia and your above ebay link doesn’t post to Australia.

I prefer a modern single handled grease gun made by Lincoln that leaves the other hand free.

Leave the adapter up to him or if you know what style it is you can get them from Restoration Specialties in California if the car needs the old style.

Here is a page from a 1920s grease gun catalog.  Alemite is a long time name in this product and your version of eBay might help you find one.

Thanks Joe really appreciated. I’m not sure if I’m answering these posts in the correct place or not so forgive me if I’m getting it wrong. Thanks

Thanks Ozstatman that sounds like a good move also. I didn’t think of repco. I tried Supercheap but I wasn’t confident that they would know exactly what I would need. 

Thank you to everyone who has helped me with this. I can’t believe all the responses and great advice I’ve received. Many thanks

PS I think I found the right place to answer

I just had a look at the link Joe and it’s from Amazon and I may also get it here before Father’s Day. Thanks heaps.

KimD,

 

Here's an option that is more expensive but a lot more practical. Lubing an antique car with a period-type grease gun is pure torture. Even using one of the air-powered grease guns is a pain.

 

If your husband is going to use the grease gun to actually lube his car, then I strongly recommend buying a Milwaukee M12 cordless grease gun. I love mine - it makes greasing a car almost fun.

 

The whole unit, complete with battery and charger is $199 from Home Depot (but look around for deals).

If you already have a M12 Milwaukee tool and battery, then you can buy the plain unit for $99.

 

I will never use anything else to grease my cars.

 

Here are a few videos about the tool:
