Rear Wheel Bearing Retaining Ring Tool


a while ago i had to change my rear wheel bearings,

i didnt fancy risking damaging the thread on the axle by removing the ring with the hammer and chisel method etc....

so i went to a laser cutting firm just up the road from me who are happy to do small jobs, and the minimum job fee isnt too much,

they laser cut an 11mm deep piece of steel to fit exactly inside the ring, i then had a large nut tig welded to the plate. the nut accepts a 32mm socket.

it did the job beautifully and i was able to undo the ring and then apply the correct torque setting easily.

using the tool allowed me to reuse the original rings also

i expected to get 6 or 10 blanks cut out for me, but they cut me 50!!

for quite some time i've been meaning to get a bunch made up and offer them for sale, but not yet got round to it....

i've done some working out and prices (pounds sterling) including postage would be...

UK - 15
USA, Canada, South Africa - 20
Holland, Finland, Sweden, Germany - 18

any feedback on the tool and prices would be greatly appreciated!!

it will also fit the front wheel bearing ring on a 33

if there is sufficient interest i will get a batch made up and sell them via an eBay 'buy it now' auction.



here are some links to pictures....
