    Does anyone know how to wash double aluminum roller?

    How to wash double alumnium roller? 15398

    Do you put everything except for the screw and nuts in a container with Tamiya's thinner? Can I use Tamiya's x-20A?

    What I know about washing bearing is here

    You put only those four 520 bearings in a container, and pour some ligher oil just enough to soak all the bearings in it. Put the lid on and shake it well.
    (I'm not really sure if Tamiya's X-20A also works...)

    Open the lid and if you find the oil became dirty, wash them again with some new oil in the same way as the first time.

    Repeat the process until the oil doesn't get dirty anymore.
    If you think they are clean, take them out from the oil and dry it by using a hair drier or osmething.

    If you have a good bearing oil, use it a tiny bit.

    Please try it and let me know how it went!

    Very Happy

    I went on the internet and found that some people recommend to use,

    Microlon Metal Treatment Spray

    F-0

    WD-40

    in specific. I'm not sure you can get them here...

    I guess some Squalene Oils, Silicon Oils, and Bearing Oils works pretty good too. You might find them at a local fishing parts store, Canadian Tire, or somewhere like that.

    Very Happy
