    axle bearing press

    I need to press on some bearings onto my rear axle shafts. My access to a hydraulic press fell through today. I called Paceway to see if they would press them on and they wanted $100. For $100 I can go buy a Harbor freight press and I didn't feel like spending another $100. So I was wondering if anyone here close to Hillsboro had one that I could use to press on my bearings? Thanks in advance.

    Every time I need something pressed, I say I should just build one or buy one from HF... and I don't... Repeat. If I had more room I'd have one.

    I've used this guy once. He works out of his home and was about $40 to press on my rear axle wheel bearings.

    Adam, sent you a PM. I've got one of the HF presses (12ton version if I remember right) you're welcome to come use if you still need it.
