Anyone try a bearing blaster?  Set the bearing in the tool and stick your carb cleaner Tunde into the opening and spray away.  Picked one up but have yet to give it a try.

I use a bearing blaster all the time. Sometimes it's best to pre-soak the bearing in solvent. It works best with the shields removed.
