Default bushing break in info needed

I have Trinity's bushing break in drops but I don't know for how long and at how many volts (or what speed on a Dremel) to run the armature for proper bushing break in. Also, how many drops to use and do you re-apply the drops after a certain amount of time?

Thanks for any help.

That stuff is too abrasive and will wear out bushings really fast. It was thought of in a time before the stepped down bushings. The absolute best stuff to break bushings in with is the original white pastey Colgate Toothpaste. put some on the armature shaft put the shaft in the can with no shims and turn a dremel on low for about 10-15 seconds and that will do it. Clean it out good, water even works with toothpaste.
