Guess I Shouldn't have Removed the Shields

I tried removing the shields for cleaning today, I guess I shouldn’t have done that.
I tried for maybe 10 minutes to put it together, until the second ball flew out of the tweezers, ne’er to be seen again.

Looks like you went just a little too deep.
You’ll get it.

The shields removed just fine, as soon as I got it into the jar and shook it around, the races came right out, along with the balls and the center.

First time I’ve had that happen.

Ooof that’s uh not normal. May not have been anything you did, just a bad bearing.

unless you kicked the jar with the bearing up and down the stairs I would say this isn’t your fault, that shouldn’t happen- most throwers take the shields off and then throw them out the door anyways

That doesn’t look like a D shielding. That looks like a colonoscopy🙀
