Headset Press/ Cup Remover

Post by Gmoney on Tue Oct 25, 2011 9:37 am

Got another frame on the way (yes, another new one)
Need to knock the Cane Creek out of the Sinister and into the new Santa Cruz.

Anyone got some shop tools and down to help/watch and laugh at my misery? I'll buy you Doner and Beer! Wink

Maybe even use your stand to swap out frames? Im pretty speedy, could get the job done in about an hour and a half.

If you can't come up with anything better, I've got a ghetto press that consists of a 1/2" stick of all-thread rod, a few heavy washers, and double nuts. It works for headsets, bb's and bearings pretty well, but maintaining concentricity is on the operator. I use a brass drift to remove cups n' things. That technique does well if you are patient and gentle, but you can booger things up a lot easier than using the expensive Park versions of said tools.

I just use a rubber mallet and wack it one good time on the flat of my workbench...takes less than three minutes to complete...not advised for carbon frame though.

Grant, your more than welcome to come over to the house and use my tools/stand to finish your project. If your not comfortable with the rubber malet I have some althread and washers as well...
