Yes, as the title says, I cleaned my bearing for the first time today. I used paint thinner and it looks as if it worked very well. The bearing is noticeably louder, which is perfectly normal from what I read. However, I’m running the bearing dry. Will this do any damage quickly to the bearing? It’ll be a couple weeks before I can get some thin lube but is there anything I can pick up at my local hardware that will do the same job as thin lube?
Oh yeah, I wouldn’t have posted this thread if that was all. I know there’s tons of bearing cleaning threads on the board. That said, I’ll continue on with the second portion of my thread.
It seems that my yoyo’s sleep time isn’t as long as it used to be. Is this because I’m not using any lube? Also, it seems quite a bit more responsive for some reason? This didn’t make any sense at all to me because I thought the thicker lube you had, the more responsive your yoyo would be. Since I’m not using lube it shouldn’t be as responsive should it? (Oh, I’m throwing a Hitman. That might help to know, I suppose)
Thanks in advance ladies and gents.
