    The "mating part" happens to be a nut but I'm not a fan of using the nut as a gauge. I would rather have the part be numerical correct instead of just having the nut screw on and going by feel.

    Yeah, I'd opt for the manual method first. Heating the holder then injecting grease is definitely not the best idea.

    Wasn't there a thread a little while back about this?

    Make an adapter for a grease fitting that goes into the pullstud, heat the tool and inject grease to force it out.

    Tivar 88 is glass filled so it can be used where regular UHMW is used but with additional wear resistance. We do regular jobs with this material and it really does chew up your tools.
