    I have found if you can work “clean” pick it up and put it in a vice, lightly turn it up and tada!.

    You’re right. I’ve used the vise before…works great! An arbor press would be the ticket! 🙂

    Good video. I use the dollup/palm method myself. The way I figure it is your going to get covered in grease anyway so why not just pack them by hand it really doesn’t take any extra time Yes the gloves are a must.. Thanks for sharing

    Thanks! The packer was a gift many years ago when I was doing a lot of car work. I’ve used it more than I though I would, but I don’t know that I would have bought one since the palm method is just as quick and easy. 🙂
    Thanks for the comments!

    You’re certainly welcome! If you have a bench vise you can squeeze it in it makes it even easier. 🙂
    It took me a bit when I got mine to figure out which way the bearing went….no instruction with it. LOL I’ve had mine at least that long, as well.

    “Fat & early fifties man…. that’s a winning combination” Very funny dude, thanks for the upload, bearings are the bomb!

  12. bluehandsvideo says:

    LOL! I’m pretty sure I said “Fat and Nearly fifty”… least I hope so…I’m still just 49. But, I’m not to bright….I’d have to go back and listen again to be sure. 🙂
    You’re more than welcome! Thanks for watching!!
