Tools needed.

Engineering dowel same size as inside of bearing.


In this case it's a 1/4 inch dowel. The are tapered to go into a 1/4 inch hole on one end. The chamfered end.

Add a bearing in a blind hole that won't come out easily.



In this case a little Avet SXJ.

Hold case in hand and push the dowel into the bearing. When it gets tight tap it in with a calibrated hammer [1].



The dowel will slide all the way in.

Now using a suitable punch tap it out from the other side using a calibrated hammer [1].



And there it is.

[1] Calibrated hammer Toolmakers term for any size hammer but don't hit it too hard.

Same sort of thing again:




I use Tri-Flow Expensive but does a superb job. It's also very good for freeing stuck spigot's on rods. Leave it to soak for 8 hrs or so.

Thanks, Simon —

For some reason, I can only view your first photo of six.

Might be on my end or your end — can’t tell...

But thank you for this technique!

You inspired me to take a look at my bearing removal system...

These hammers have now been “calibrated” very carefully into a precise and graduated group.

😁😁😁

Best Always,

Fred

“Of course, now I am too old to be much of a fisherman, and now of course I usually fish the big waters alone, although some friends think I shouldn’t. Like many fly fishermen in western Montana where the summer days are almost Arctic in length, I often do not start fishing until the cool of the evening.

Then in the Arctic half-light of the canyon, all existence fades to a being with my soul and memories and the sounds of the Big Blackfoot River and a four-count rhythm and the hope that a fish will rise.

Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world’s great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs.

I am haunted by waters.”

How do you ensure the hammers go back in the correct calibrated holders?   Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy
