I have managed to rescue 3 electrical tools when bearings failed.
Probably teaching you lot how to suck eggs but this is how I get the
bearing out, just in case it is useful for someone.
I use a large socket on the end that the bearing will come out so that
it can fit inside the socket, I then get a slightly smaller socket at
the other end, this is used to push the bearing out.
I then line up and place in a vice and slowly push the bearing out by
tightening the vice.
And if the combined length of it all is wider than your vice will open
simply use a long bolt of piece of threaded rod through the sockets.
This method works well for void bushes as well perhaps substituting the
large socket for a piece of tube.
