Bearing Removal and Installation Tools
I machined these to be able to remove and install the bearings without the need to separate the press fit assembly of the DEC axis. The top tool just fits inside the bore, but grips enough of the bearing to be able to press it out.
The bottom tool is the installation tool. The bearing is placed on the smaller diameter and pressed in from the bottom. The top bearing must be pressed through the bottom bore and into the top. The bottom bearing is installed just below flush.
These tools are available for borrow. Contact me for details (contact me menu item).
