I am constantly having an issue with my “used” bearings. After cleaning them I just cant them to spin like they use too. Compared to a brand new ct they spin time is maybe half or a 1/3 of the time. So here is what im doing, please please please reply if you have had better results.
- Remove bearing, leave sides on if they are there.
- Put bearing into mineral spririts. Leave to 10-15 minute, swish around every once in a while,
- Remove bearing from solution dry with paper towel, leave wrapped if needed.
- Test out bearing, lube as needed.
That is basically it, how ever they get LOUD and even with lube i can just hear a lot of scratching and rubbing.
I have never been able to get a bearing to act like new, or even close to new, at this rate id just have to buy new bearings, or play with shorter combos and tricks :c
Thanks for your help and your time.
