I recently got into another hobby and one of the big topics is bearing cleaning. Well the folks there have some method of cleaning bearings I've never heard of. One of them is lighter fluid, soaking and than lighting them on fire. The fire method is well toted in this hobby. Your not going to believe it but this hobby/sport is Yo-Yo's.
Let me explain, I recently was on eBay and notice Losi Yo Yo's. The price was really cheap so what the heck I bought one. It seems that in 1997-1999 there was a huge fad that I totally missed. Reviewing all the info I could fine on the subject. I became interested in these new Ball Bearing type Yo's.
I guess everyone has one time or another has played with yo-yo's for me it was remembering my childhood, at the age of 11 I won a contest (that what I did in the 60's to young to be a hippie).
Back to the present, I haven't been around "RcTech" for a while, the reason is, I've build a web site on the subject of Yo-Yo's. The site needs content that's informative and useful. What I want to do is put together a Bearing Cleaning Info page that contains proper methods that work. I got to believe the fire cleaning method is dangerous to be telling kids to do. If anyone can post or point me to what info I'm seeking it will be well appreciated and you might just Prevent a Forest Fire!
