I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum

LOL yea all them methods will work, however will destroy the bearings. They do make many simple bearing removal and press tools or can use a homemade tools as long as use common sense.

Sorta depends what kind of wheels. For inlines, a 5/16 bolt will fit nicely into the 8mm hole, and then you kind of stir it around and pull outward. To install, you just push them in, and then give them a final tap once the wheels are in the frame. For quad wheels, no idea.

A 5/16 is 7.9 mm's, but make sure file smooth the threads as they may damage the inside of the bearings.

Alos, you should gently, gradually work the bearing out. Don't just put the tool in and pry 'til it flies out...

I should have remembered that in my instructions:

[revised instructions]
1) Ease the bearing from the wheel
2) Tip back your head and watch as the bearing pops out and makes a long graceful arc towards the furthest corner of the room
3) Spend the next half-hour trying to retrieve said bearing from behind the bookcase
4) Repeat with remaining bearings, but take Bill's advice

[/revised instructions]
