 Has anyone used the "greaser" to do their bearings?  It takes about 15 seconds

per bearing  ( purge out the old grease,  and re-pack)  Just wanted to know if
anyone else has tried this tool.

You won't be skating, as these are useless - no better than ABEC 1 in
this application.

I'm not sure if it's the exact tool you are refering to, but I have used something
simalr to what you described. I thought it worked OK.

It purges the old greese but still leaves a lot of grit in the bearing. And gresse
has to much rolling resistance for me. So I went back to the total teardown
cleaning method.

I'm not sure if it the same thing.  I use it on
my R/C heli bearings.  On the heli you do not want any grit in there, because
it can create noise problems spinning at
1800-2000 rpm.  The bearings I have used it
on are very smooth, ( no notchy feeling)
I'm not sure about the rolling resistance.
 I use a special silicon grease on the heli,
and that is what I put in the skate bearings
seems fine.  But I don't skate at a level
where that would be that critical.
