Awesome info, I pieced mine together for a whopping $6.98 at Home Depot, and then all I did was apply adhesive backed felt to the larger washers so the bearings/cups dont get scratched at all. Works like a charm!!

I used Ravens idea. I made one and use it for the headtube and bottom bracket cups. Now if only I can come up with an idea for knocking them out. The hammer and screw drivers method isn't humane.yikes

Re: DIY-headset/bearingpress....what so have.....

Mdeltab, either a brass punch or an old aluminum seat post (still using a hammer of course) works great to knock them out. Both are a bit softer than the metal you are beating on so it shouldnt damage the cups or bearings.

Re: DIY-headset/bearingpress....what so have.....

The only proper way to remove headset cups. Knocks them out straight and even with no marking. If knocking out a $250+ Tange why not spend $25. There is also a knock off(not Park made) for $20 or less.

Agreed. I've got a nice powdered frame set here at home that has the cups still in the bottom bracket that I don't want to chabnce on ruining. I've also found myself having to remove these cups quite often so I might as well go ahead and grab one of these.

You know another nice thing to have not meaning to change the subject? A nice brake cable cutter. They can run up around $30 but well worth it.

Hammer and a punch instead tongue I just use a mallet and 2x4 to put bearing cups in, works fine
