I’m trying to clean my grind machine bearing as well as the hubstack bearings. I can’t get it out but on yoyojam bearings it takes 1 minute. Help
I find it varies from bearing to bearing.
I have trouble with the OD 10 Balls. You get it eventually…
I just press down on the shields hard with the little file on fingernail clippers and they just pop out.
You might want to use a sharper pin or needle. You may also want to try from the other end of the C-clip. Some are really tough to remove, but they will come out.
Look really closely. One end of c clip will look like / and the other will look like /. You want to stick the needle at the top of the /_ one. I have a really hard time with 10 balls. The shields look like _|, so there is nowhere to stick the needle. I normally just replace the c clips with yyf ones because they are easier to take off. And they are the same size (duh).
It varies from bearing to bearing. Usually it takes me a few seconds, sometimes it takes me a minute or so. I have one 10 Ball that I have completely given up on deshielding.
