*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com

Default Need information on bearings

Hello all, i am new to this forum, but not new to skating. Many people tell me good bearings are percision bearing, and ceramic bearings, but i have no way of knowing, because here in N.H. (U.S.A.), there not many places to buy bearing, where you can ask questions, and the sales person knows what there talking about.
I have a few sets of bearings, for both 7mm, and 8mm, but don't know much about them. I have a set of bearings that say "FAFNIR" "37KD" (7mm)
a set that say "60018" "WS" "J", (8mm), and a set that say "SNH" ''627Z" (or 527Z) 8mm. My questions are, is there a code to understand what the numbers, & letters mean?, where can i find this code(if there is one), and what can i use to clean bearings, and what can i use to lubricate them.
I know.....it's an awful lot of questions, but if anyone could just answer one, i would be so greatful ! I am the manager of a roller skating rink, and i feel a bit foolish having to tell customers i don't know what there bearing are.

P.S. Would love to here what other rinks around the nation/world, are listening to, and do you play "4-Corners #'s game" where you skate??
