I was trying to take the bearing out of my Sine//Saw, but am having some issues. First of all, the sides were so incredibly tight that it took quite a bit of torque to get them apart. Once apart, the bearing is stuck inside. I tried putting it in the freezer and I have a YYF tool to try to get it out. I worked at it for hours. So, that’s problem one.

Now, problem two is, after I gave up on getting the bearing out, I decided to just put it back together. This yoyo was as smooth as possible before… no longer. Any suggestions on either problem?
