If you frequently set up new decks or replace your bearings frequently, this tool will let you effortlessly do it right EVERY time.
How many times have you set a bearing by pressing it into place with a cheap skate tool? And how many times did the wheel wobble slightly until you put some more weight into it? Several, if youíre new to the technique. If youíre replacing bearings, how many skate tools have a reliable (aka - useable) bearing remover? And who hasnít ruined a wheel trying the ever-popular ďhammer & screwdriver comboĒ technique?
Setting bearings is a snap with FKDs press. Simply slide on the two bearings, one wheel and give the handle a firm squeeze. Done. Perfect rotation, no wobbles and no broken parts. Removing a bearing is just as easy - just use the other end of the press. Hook the bearing on the end, pull the handle and presto - your old bearings are out.
Owning a bearing press is more than just a cool-factor. Its about using the right tool for the job. On the other hand, your cool-factor will definitely rise when your pals see this baby bolted to your bench. It give off the notion of "I know what the hell Iím doing" - even if ya donít.
