    Anyone know of a cool tool for removing caster bearing 8mm 608 etc puller extractor

    Looking for a tool that wouldn't require using a hammer. blind bearing extractor with no hammer action.
    I'm tired of hammering them out!
    Something with a little finesse where you could use say an expanding colette action that would thread to a frame that would push against the wheel.

    Seems like an obvious tool, been looking but can't find anything that doesn't cost $1k.

    A combination of this. http://wheelsmfg.com/presses-tools/6...extractor.html


    and this - http://www.superstarcomponents.com/e...tting-tool.htm (This is the wrong size, and you can't get behind the caster bearing like this i know.. but for $10 it's pretty sweet)

    What's wrong with a hammer and punch? Gets the job done just fine IMO

    You could simply use a combination of bolts washers and nuts of the correct sizes. It would pull the bearings out with threading action like the tool in the video. I set mine with this method. (I currently use hammer and punch to remove, but with a few more washers I could pull them, too.)

    Nothing, the guy just asked for a non-hammer solution. Not everyone likes...

    pretty much, but was hoping someone out there had run into a well made compact tool.
