  2. Before you can lubricate your bearings please be sure to follow the necessary guides to access the desired bearings
  3. Hold your bearing in one hand and with your other hand squeeze a pea size amount of lubricant directly into the opening of the bearing, as seen in the first image Next, use a clean thin narrow dowel rod or a long match stick(wood side only) and with a swirling motion apply the lubricant around the inside of the bearing, as seen in the second image
