Break cleaner
Sewing machine oil

Noted.

On a side note, this reminded me one day my  brother told me that shoe goo looked like windshield glue...

Shoe Goo is the same shit as E6000 automotive and industrial adhesive. It was suggested to me at an auto part store to adhere some loose trim in my car, and when I got it home I realized that they’re made by the same company, come in the same tube with the same warning labels and specifications. Same shit, just marketed to different customers.

They also cost basically the same amount so there’s no advantage buying E6000, unless you’re already at the auto store.

This is not my SOTY. I'm telling my kids there was no SOTY for 2021

Big if true, E6000 is 1/2 the price of Shoe Goo in my country, definitely testing this out over the weekend.

Again, appreciate all the love on this thread!

Tell your local shops!  That’s what’s going to keep the lights on in the lab.

There’re still some shops sleeping.

E6k and shoe goo are not the same. Shoe goo is thicker and is harder once it cures while E6k is thinner and flexible once its cured, even in cold weather.

Interesting. After I noticed the similarities, I used E6000 as Shoe Goo and it worked just as well.

Ordered a small tube to test it out. If it does 80% of the job for 1/2 the price I'm sticking to it.

the ‘new’ skf bearings are hitting uk shops now, anyone happen to have tried em yet? fairly decent price point (£30, same as super reds here), made in italy and apparently same ‘specification’ as swiss. tempting as i could do with fresh bearings

I spread the Quantum gospel to my homie who recently ordered some. He got em today and was tripping how fast they are. He loves em. Gonna pick up some soon, all my bearings are turning into trash.

From certain things I noticed watching my homie skate today, they seem to definitely be just as good or better than swiss. Especially at the price.

My most recent Quantum Atoms are still going strong. Then slowed down for a bit but a quick clean and they’re good to go. A few of the shields won’t stay on but they sent new ones so we’re all good! They’re quieter than my Swiss but I guess I don’t care since they don’t make the board sound weird like an over lubed bearing.

Not sure if you've already answered this question, but are y'all planning on shipping to Japan or getting distributed out here?

I prefer bearings with spacer and washers milled in like Race Reds.

I use Bear Space Balls.

I lube with a small amount of moly grease which creates some grease drag (wheels only free spin for about four seconds max). Bearings stay the same no matter how much dirt/sand they are exposed to. Everyone who has ridden my setup never complains about speed.

I dislike loosing speed due to dirty bearings and find cleaning a pain in the ass so i went searching for a solution.

I use a baby oral syringe to apply. No need to thin grease as done in the video below.

I skate bones Swiss ceramics. (they were gifted to me I didn't spend the 140-160)

ive had the same bearings for about 13 years now. I regularly clean them usually when I get new wheels or its a boring rainy day. I've only had to buy bearing shields from bones twice because the sheilds would get bent or seat to peel from removing them so much and I rebuilt 2 of them because the retainer plastic started to fall apart probably due to cleaning. so I think I've spent 15 bucks in 13 years on these bearings.

been cleaning with acetone with the bones bearing cleaning kit and now the quantum ceramic lube

I just picked up some Quantum Isotopes and will be trying them out at the local DIY this afternoon. Stoked because I’ve heard so many good things and also because it’s a company kinda in my local area (made in Charlotte and I’m in Columbia).
Shout out Bluetile for hooking it up!

Got a set through the door this week.  Haven't skated them yet (it's wet and windy up here just now) but I'm stoked on 'em.  Slow spin on them out of the box but I hope they'll break in quickly.  All 8 were silky smooth btw.

I got a set, been using them for the past couple weeks, they are packed with grease and have metal shields on the backside. They seem to be per god so far, pretty smooth. I kept the shield on them, they seem to have a longer break in period than most bearings. No spacers, or washers so that sucks but yea they alright

I think they get raw bearings form china, but the magic sauce is done in house.
