Episode 4: Caring For Your Wheel/Come

July 5, 2010

Download Episode 4 Here

Caring for your wheel

DO NOT OIL SEALED BEARINGS! This may cause the seal to fail and damage the bearings.  While sealed bearings will not last forever, they will last a long, long time before they have to be replaced.  For most normal handspinners you will never need to replace a sealed bearing in your wheel.

Basics for cleaning an antique wheel.

Come

Come-Levels 1-7

Come Game– Listed under Level 1 Come

Monkey in the Middle– Over half way down the introduction page.

When I spoke of a separate podcast about Controlled Unleashed (CU), I meant a separate episode that rather than be about the Training Levels, will be about CU.   Heavens, one podcast is enough for me!
