Bearing?


#1

So I followed a tutorial and cleaned my bearing. I put it in a bottle full of paint thinner and it cleaned tiself. Then I put on liquid wrench lubricant on it. since thats the only one i have.

I just dropped a drop on the tip of a needle and put it in the bearing and spun it. But i feel that it is breaking when I play… It is very loud and still responsive.

The lubricant you used is causing the responsiveness in your bearing.  You will need to clean it again though try doing it more like the video below.  You need a thinner lube and only just a drop of it.  If you don’t have any thin lube just go to your local music store and ask for trumpet valve oil.  Shouldn’t cost more than $3.  It looks like water and the consistency is not much thicker than water.  Also, what yoyo are you using?

This should be in a different section.

Just play with it and it should go away.
