get a glass or plastic jar. put a lighter fluid or mineral spirits in. preferably mineral spirits. enough to cover the bearing. shake jar for 1 minute. take out and dry completely. use compressed air if available. oil lightly, and there ya go.

Lighter fluid, Paint thinner and thin lube.
Any of thes will work but I recomend paint thinner and thin lube. :wink:

I’m sorry, but this sounds like you’re recommending cleaning with thin lube.

I just gave mine a cleaning a while ago. I didn’t really think they needed it, but I thought why not? Turns out my bearings were in need. I had forgotten what it was supposed to feel like clean, smooth and quiet.

So just how often do you clean yours?
