How do you lube the bearings on a Logo10?

I have been adding a little synthetic oil, is it best to strip&grease?

If so what do you guy's use?

Cheers

Tim

Oil may actually flush away the grease in the bearings. If these bearings have been used heavily, I would soak them in cleaner, like wood alcohol, blow or drip dry, then use the "Greaser" to grease them. If you are on a "routine" maintainence, may be just use the Greaser to grease them would be adequate.

Hi Tanner,

I bet that they are not sealed, but only shielded. "The greaser" forces grease past the shields with hydraulic pressure and works pretty well! You force grease through until the grease coming out is clean, so this cleans out all the crap. I use Tri-Flow synthetic grease (not their oil!).

Cheers!

Hi,

Where do we purchase the "Greaser"?

Sounds to be a excellent tool.

Pete's Hobbies has good info about the "Greaser". I think Pete, whoever that is, invented this thing.
