What can i use to lubricate the bearings?
« on: August 23, 2013, 10:56:07 am »
On my second pair of bearings for the diabolo shining now which i have used in the last 6 months which seems alot allready imo and the latest pair are all of a sudden very very noisy which makes me not want to use it... i opened it up and have tightened all the parts etc but no change... on inspecting both bearings in the diabolo one looks perfectly fine but the other seems to have next to no lubrication? could i just use wd40 to fix that problem or should i use something else as im sure this is the reason why im getting all this noise...  thanks

Never use WD40 for lubrication purposes, it's not what it's made for basically.
Contact juggling supplier/manufacturer could help you find the right type of lube.
