I’m relatively new to yoyoing and have read many guides on cleaning bearings.
I’ve used white spirit to soak my bearing, but I haven’t applied lubricant yet, so in other words, I currently have a “dry” bearing. I did clean it once before but poured too much sewing machine oil (I don’t have thin yoyo lube), so I had to start again.
The question is, how long is a clean dry bearing supposed to spin for? I’m kinda lost as I haven’t managed any “out of the box” bearing spin times (flicking it on a pencil) after I cleaned it, so I’m guessing that I might not have washed out all the excess oil I used before, but seeing as I left it overnight, I’m pretty sure that the oil’s all out. I’m going to wash it all out with white spirit again to be sure
