      Wheel bearing remover

      Not exactly shure where to put this info but found this thread so will put it here.

      I remember it took me a very long time and lots of sweat to remove my first set of wheel bearings for my hardtail build with a nail punch, being careful not to damage the hub etc.... Then i learnt you can use a screw driver to drive it out from the other end after heating up the hub etc etc...i think what most people do and what i have been using for a while but last night i made this little beauty that does it seconds, no more bent screw drivers, looking for the heat gun etc... just a couple of light knocks with a hammer and she's out! no special tools needed.

      spare timber frame square metal strap lying around... can use any thin metal really, what ever you can shape with a tin snip. MattyP can send you some for free if you need.
