Trouble with the bearing


(Frank W.) #1

Hey guys my bearing is being stubborn and wont come out so I can clean it. So what are some of the methods you guys use to get yours out.


#2

wiggle it out with pliers


#3

Try lubing the place. Or you can just clean it in there. Although samad doesn’t like this, you can open it up, and just put a couple drops of hydrogen peroxide, although it might eat your plastic. What yoyo is it?


#4

Pull it out with my fingers. I have a loose bearing that comes off very easily.

I have an x-convict and I usually use pliers but this bearing just doesn’t want to come out.

Do you use cloth? and I would just try to ease it out. Pulling sideways (diagonally) may help.


(Frank W.) #7

Havent tried cloth yet.

Steel is magnetic right? I think I might have heard of people using magnets to get them out. Pliars should work better IMO.

Addment: MIne comes out easily, so I wrap a lot of string around it and pull it out.

If you’re planning to get a magnet, get a SUPER MAGNET! Not those that you find in science labs.
