RPM Super-Sizes the Classic Bearing Blaster

Feb 09, 2014 No Comments by

RPM’s Bearing Blaster is an RC classic, and now there’s a super-sized version for the extra-big rollers in large-scale RC vehicles–not to skateboards, as RPM sagely points out. The Mega Bearing Blaster, like the original model, sandwiches the bearing to be cleaned between two nested cones with an opining for the spray-tube of your favorite cleaner/lube in the top. When you squirt the juice into the Bearing Blaster, it has no place to go except through the bearing. It works. See below for RPM’s press release.

The RPM Mega Bearing Blaster takes up where our original Bearing Blaster leaves off. The Mega Bearing Blaster can handle bearing sizes up to 1.25” (32mm) in diameter, meaning 1/5th scale R/C owners, rollerbladers, skaters & skateboarders (using the immensely popular 608 bearing) now have the best option for cleaning bearings.

The RPM Mega Bearing Blaster is still one of the smallest tools available but the results achieved are anything but “small”. Unlike the predominance of bearing cleaning devices and solutions currently on the market, the RPM Mega Bearing Blaster uses pressure to blast debris from dirty bearings, providing instantaneous results. Operation couldn’t be easier. Simply remove the top, place the dirty bearing (with the shields removed) on the center cone of the base and then replace the top. Take your favorite can of cleaner (not included), slip the spray tube in the top of the Mega Bearing Blaster, hold it down and blast away! Bearings will be clean in just seconds!

The RPM Mega Bearing Blaster isolates the bearing in a contained environment, making it the safest way to forcefully blast debris from your bearings by preventing back-splash of cleaners and lubricants from hitting your hands and/or face.

The same tool used to clean your bearings can also be used to lubricate them. Switch your spray from a cleaner to a lightweight lubricant, give it a blast and you’re done! It’s quick, it’s easy and it’s the most effective cleaner available!

The RPM Mega Bearing Blaster works on bearings with a minimum inside diameter of 3/16” (5mm) and a maximum outside diameter of 1.25” (32mm).
