    Hey, looking forward to.the.series but shouldn’t we be rinsing off the.solvent too? Without doing that the solvent residue will.dissolve the lube. An alcohol rinse? What lube are you using? Ta.

      Acetone evaporates really quick, that’s why it’s cold to the touch. The colder a substance is in room temperature the easily it evaporates (ice, liquid nitrogen…etc). So the acetone won’t do any harm to your lube. Also I’m using machine oil lube for like sewing machines and stuff.

    What a great series! Thanks for doing this!

    A little tip from me would be to spray them with some compressed air after you are done soaking.

    Using an old jar instead of a bowl means you can swirl the bearings about,ndislodging more grime and also keeping you safe from the chemicals you are using. This also can be used to reuse your cleaning fluid later

    Lisa, thanks for sharing. I just bought a Sector 9 Bamboo Lookout Drop, and I wonder how frequent should I clean the bearings? And would acetone harms my ceramics bearings?
