Here’s a short video showing how Gibbs can be used on all parts of a motorbike…

Unblocking a Heating fuel oil counter
There are two properties using one fuel oil storage tank and to register what oil is used per property I installed fuel counters. Unfortunately these units block quite often (mainly in cold weather as the fuel becomes waxy) and need to be taken off and an airline used to clear them. I decided to fill them with Gibbs and let them soak overnight. I refitted them and they haven’t blocked since.

Lubricating a Bicycle Chain with Gibbs Brand
Gibbs Brand is great for use on a bicycle chain. It not only lubricates it, but also helps keep it clean by not attracting dirt.
This video shows a great example – a folding bike with 16″ wheels. The chain is not far off the ground due to the small wheels which means the chain is very susceptible to dirt and spray off the road. However as it’s been lubricated regularly with Gibbs Brand the chain is still clean and running freely.

GIBBS BRAND WORKS! – Fixing a squeaky Brother HL-2150N Laser Printer
The office laser printer has been squeaking for ages, so we decided it was about time to fix it with the magic of Gibbs Brand.
It was squeaking whenever it activated the paper feed, so we carefully squirted a small amount of Gibbs onto the bearings for the various paper rollers (make sure you disconnect the power cable from the printer before you do this). It turned out it was the big red roller in the back of the printer that was being noisy. Once we’d finished lubricating we than ran a few sheets of scrap paper through the printer to soak up any excess Gibbs and the squeak was gone 🙂
The great thing about using Gibbs Brand to lubricate the bearings is that it does not leave a sticky residue so it’s not going to collect toner dust. Hopefully now Gibbs has been applied the squeak will not return!
