Title: 2019 ReelSpeed Miniature Bearing Puller Kit V.3
Post by: Cadman on July 23, 2019, 05:18:35 PM
Hey Guys,
    Mysteriously 7 months later I got an e-mail from Aaron the guy who owns Reel Speed Products. He is now selling his version 3 bearing puller. I don't know if I can post info about him here, as I know that there was a problem in the past. Anyway, the kit now is $285.00 If you want more info PM me and I will forward his info . Alan if I can post it here, please let me know and I will. I think it is a little too pricey, he went from $250 to $285 for the bearing puller and 11 tips.

aaron is no longer allowed to post here for good reason, but i do not mind this post being here.  as a matter of fact, i wish to thank you for bringing this up.  knowing aaron, it is an excellent product.  the problem with him was well known.  there were several complaints of him accepting funds and then never shipping for a really, really long time.  i am hoping that he is more organized now.  i knew that he was going through a really rough patch at the time, but i made a decision back then and i think it is still a valid decision now.  i do not want this site directly associated with him.  indirectly is another matter.  a simple google search of this title will get you all the information you need to find the product and evaluate it for yourself.  what you posted should be sufficient.  i wish you, and aaron, only the best of luck!  alan

Alan,
   I have no affiliation with him and am not interested in purchasing his product ( although it looks well made). What irritated me the most about him was, that I asked him several times about his product via e-mails,his dad and phone calls. He never replied either by phone or e-mail, and now all of a sudden decides to contact me. That to me shows poor businessman-ship, and I have the same feelings you do about him. Alan,Thank You for your input.

   I wish someone reputable like Tom Hryniuk or Alan Chui would make these pullers...then I'd be in line for a set. 8)

of course.  your intentions were never a question. 

as far as his business goes, part of me really understands.  i've been behind the 8 ball before (actually still am) and i know what it's like.  to varying degrees, we're all just doing the best we can.  and then there is this......

I think you contact them via the ReelSpeed website.

Aaron is a great guy personally. I like him.

Ordered a set earlier this year never seen it, never was able to contact him, no replies to email.  Got my money back via Paypal Dispute resolution.

His dad was unhelpful and just kept saying he had nothing to do with his son's business yet pimps it on his site.

Only way I would buy another is if he shipped it to me first.

Buyer Beware.
