I didn't know this works.
Does this work with skateboarding bearings as well?

Defiantly not because it's so thick. Also don't use WD-40 on bearings because it creates a thin film which attracts dirt and grim, something you don't want. I would suggest Tri-flow or Bone Swiss Cream.

Yea it does but it requires more frequent cleaning id put my bearings in paint thinner every week.
