A while back Aaron (Reel Speed) made us some bearing pullers

these are good, but not great on stubborn bearings
Aaron then decided to step it up a notch and made us these

they did the job on the stubborn ones, but unfortunately the tip is too brittle, as you can see here

Here is his third attempt and I do believe his last. These are great, I was able to do anything I needed to do with these



on this bearing I wasn't able to remove the retaining ring, but that wasn't a problem, it pulled the bearing and ring right out


if anyone has one of these Jvariance or similar plate, you will notice that it's impossible to get that bearing out, I tried it with everything I had and still couldn't do it.


this one needed the sliding hammer


and right out it came, with just a couple of gentle taps

the set comes with a sliding hammer and 5 different sized tips that will handle most bearings.
I'm very happy with this set, if you service many reels I recommend that you get one, it will be one of  your best tool.
Here is a link...if interested, Aaron has a video on this set
enjoy it!

PRICEY    But worth it, I wouldn't give up my set.


If you're in the reel service/maintenance business or serious into the hobby of reel maintenance and repair,
this tool will prove its worth.

 I can only comment on the kit and it is a great one, the rest would be up to you guys. Just think about when you get frustrate with a stubborn bearing and smash that reel against the wall, this set would actually be saving you money Grin .

I just sent the check for one of Tom's Squidders. I guess I can't have everything.

Cheesy I talk with every part I send out and each reel I repair so that they perform at the top of their game. Cheesy

I contacted Aaron to see what was going on and he said that they weren't moving, then all of a sudden they all went.
He said for you guys to contact him directly if you wanted to, his email is:
reelspeed@yahoo.com
or you could wait until he puts some more on amazon.com

I bet you won't need to cut the newell bearing cup using one of these, send me one of those really bad  bearings, I like to give it a shot, just for my own satisfaction.
