In twenty years of being a machinist/mechanic I have never heard (or
read) of this grease fitting called anything other than a zerk fitting
or a grease fitting. "Zerk" refers back to the inventor (or something
like that) the less colorful, but still acceptable, name is "grease
fitting." Call it by either name and your end user will understand.

This question is for all the gearhead TWs (I know you're out
there):

The connector where you pump grease into a bearing: Is it
spelled "zerk" =
or "zirc"?
I realize this is jargon-y, but I'm squeamish about the term
"nipple". =
Any and
all alternate suggestions are welcome!
