If a grease gun is so simple to make, why didnt the geniuses invent it in the 1830s?

    Because a pot of grease and a brush are sufficient to lubricate a steam engine.

    There was nothing to "Grease" then except for wagon wheels and steam engines---and there was NO GREASE before petroleum became available in the 1840---They used LARD from a PIG

    The grease gun was not needed in 1830. It's a simple tool, and was "invented" when needed.
