Default Best tool for working on wheels, disks, sprocket, bearings

Tricks in the workshop....
The important issues when working on Wheels, Disks, Sprocket or Bearings are;
  1. The height and stability of the work area,
  2. Not cluttering your bench, and
  3. Protecting the Rim, sprocket and disk.
This is my answer.... The Wheelie Bin (Rubbish / Trash Bin)!

Anytime you have tools that involve interaction with hammers imo they are by default automatic winners - potentially
even candidates for best in show ..... you could almost say .....wait for it ...... they're .........."the best a man can get" !

well almost maybe by a hair or 20 ...k ......arrrr arrrr

I did fronts and rears last month. Yesterday I did the rears on my DR-Z400.

I used this Blind Hole Bearing Puller form Harbor freight. With a 20% off coupon its a bargain and time saver. The problem I find is that I can go crazy (really) slamming the hammer and working up a sweet with little, more like no, results.

I find it best to install the puller as per the directions and then proceed to the tool chest and fetch the largest hammer. With a few serious blows on the end of the puller the bearings fly out the opposite side. I sounds like tool abuse but for the price, I don't care, it works.

And yes, I had bearings flying all over the place. I could have set the wheel in the can like Naga_Thai did but didn't think of it. I will in the future.
