Hey everyone, I'm a newby here ... After reading a few posts, I decided to order a few specialized tools, not normally available @ my local hardware store.

1. Alan's " Bearing Packer & Needle Kit " .

2. Reel Speed " Bearing Puller Kit ".

I received my new " Bearing Puller Kit " today, and began tinkering with it. I immediately notice a bit of uneven coating ( Anodizing ?) on a few of the Nut Pullers (?).


On closer inspection, it appears to be surface rust, which was also inside the threads.


I assembled them on the threaded T- Wrench, to make sure they worked  & tried cleaning them up with some protective oil before storing them for future use.


This one had a some debris (Thread Metal Shaving ?) , which I removed & cleaned.

The " Bearing Puller kit '  didn't come with a storage box,..So, I looked around the garage and made one, actually two  Smiley




11" x 5 3/4 " Cigar Box

I decided on a larger box to add my custom " Bearing Packers ".



11 1/2 " X 7 3/4 " Cigar Box


I'm slightly disappointed with the finish on the " Bearing Pullers " .. for what was " Advertised " & purchased as a " NEW " ( Amazon )  item. Undecided

I don't blame you -- I would ask for a new set.

You will not have any issues with Alan's tools.

Welcome by the way & good photos.

Glad to have you on board.

Best,

Fred

Sorry you're dealing with the rust issue Perro, I've been using mine for almost a year and never wiped them down or added oil, mine do not show any rust  Undecided.
Here is a pic or two of my set:



I'm not sure  what's going on with yours, but as for functionality, I still recommend this tool. To me it is still one of the best tool I own.

I'm not one to " Nit-pick ", just sharing what arrived at my doorstep.

Yours look like " NEW ",..  compared to the set I received.  Undecided

Hopefully my set, will function as well as yours ....?

No, I'm not arguing with you, you have every right to be upset, I would be. You should get what you've paid for. I just didn't get it why mine didn't look the same, I've been using them quite a bit and never cleaned them.
Did you contact Aaron?

I'm new here  Smiley

I'm not " Upset / Mad , etc " ..just pointing out my disappointment with the Finish.

Again.. " Yours look like new.. compared to what arrived at my doorstep " .. It wasn't meant as an argument !

Just pointing out a few " Photo Facts "  Wink

Okay ... So, I tried cleaning the rust ( Corrosion ) off,..but it's pretty well set in on three of the " Bearing Puller Nuts " ( ? ).






I sent the vendor a message. I'll send this one back,.. with a request for a " NEWER.. "  ( Better ) set.

If you purchased them from Amazon, it's possible that the corrosion is from storage in WA where Amazon's warehouse is located.  I'm not sure if Aaron provided the puller kit with those anti-corrosion boards.

YUP .. Amazon.
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HZV1LP0/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Hopefully, they will send me a replacement from their " Santa Fe Springs " location, which is closer to me," Valencia, CA ".

HMMM.. I might place another order for a " Spool Pin Pliers "..  Wink

There were " No Anti-Corrosion Boards ", in the Delivery Box.

Mine were not corroded either and they came from Aaron. The pin pliers are the best I have ever used.

You should have no issues with Aaron or Amazon.

That is the nice thing about dealing with good companies.

Best,

I'd send that set back for a new one... Hope Amazon does better than Aaron when it comes to communication.

OK, welcome and let me be the first to say that your frenched foam cigar box tool case is superb!! All you need now is a Jack Daniels bottle filled with TSI to go with it and it will say it all rite there.

I personally don't drink hard liquor... I'm more of a " Micro Brew " Beer drinker.. with the traditional beer belly to prove it  Wink

The wife on the other hand likes her " Rum " & " Grand Marnier ".

That stuff was so expensive ( CUVÉE DU CENT CINQUANTENAIRE ).. I refused to throw the empty bottles away...  Shocked


So , I made them into lamps for my small travel Trailer.

HMMM, I might have another for a future project ....?

P.S.:  I gave up smoking cigars years ago Sad
