A volt meter will leave the circuit open.

Re break in fluids. Does it specifically need to be water? I don't particularly like the idea of water in my bearings as I know it will be impossible to flush out 100% with wd40. Wouldn't an oil based fluid be better? For example: kerosene, or if more lubricity is required, diesel? Plus it will do a very good job washing out any dirt from the bearings too. Kerosene will flash off by itself however diesel will leave an oily residue. Re oiling the bearings should be a lot easier as its all oil based so no wd40 is required to displace the water.

I never tried it. Maybe a lite oil (sewing machine oil) 3 in 1 perhaps, I never tried that either.
