    First thing I do with all Terrapin X bearings is wash them with dish detergent and water to get out the machining fragments and oil.

    He probably buys a new bearing.
    At least 15% of what I say is true.

    Finger Lakes Yoyo Club in Ithaca, NY - PM me for details.

    I flick 'em.
    And if they are good they get the Wing Cut, cleaned twice in solvents that leaves no residue, dry treated, tested and packed.

    fjh123 - I'm lovin' that dry lube. acetone for cleaning, MEK mixed with your dry lube to treat the cleaned bearing and spin it out with a dremel to pulverize any grit that may be present after the MEK evaporates. Best improvement in spin that I've found.

    Glad you got it figured out. If you put less dust in the MEK you don't have to use the dremel, just flick it 'till it dries.
    Someone got some from me and now I see Terrapin treated A size bearings on another online store.
    In the same batch of bearings some C clips almost fall out and some almost never come out. I even sharpen my needle.
    Thanks

    I'll try sharpening my needle. I usually do 8 to 12 at a time and by the time I get all the C-Clips out my fingers have holes in em'. But that comes from the point slipping out so sharper would, indeed be better. I stll haven't done any work with that tach I got from you off Ebay. I am planning on running a comparison, before & after. But I dont need the tach to tell me they are alot better. Another trick I learned is, instead of maintenance type cleaning, since the dry lube last a long time I just blow the bearing out with the canned air I buy for dusting out my PC. It doesn't contain water or any other contaminants.

    You got the tack, that's cool. Mine is set up with a timer. What you do is throw and find a good RPM to start from. I can throw consistantley over 8,000 so when it drops to 8 I start timeing. I test between 8 and 2 thousand. That's where it all happens.

    Yes, nothing sticks to it at all, and it's totally dry so they blow out clean.

    Sounds great. I will be looking for what you come up with when you do..
