New Style Bearing Puller
"We've had tremendous interest in it. There's nothing else on the market like it," says Colleen Lewis of Lewis Machine & Mfg., Dighton, Kan., about the nifty new bearing puller for pulling flange-type bearings off shafts that her husband Bruce invented.
Designed to pull bearings with a lip on them - flange, cam lock, eccentric, etc. - the new bearing puller fits seven different shaft sizes, including 7/8,15/16,1,11/16, 1 1/8, 1 3/16, and 1 1/4-in. dia.
The main puller consists of two separate pieces that lock over the lip on the bearing. An outer sleeve slides over the locking pieces and a cap screws onto the threaded end of the main puller, locking the puller in place. Then a long bolt screws into the end of the puller, pushing against the end of the shaft to force the bearing off.
"It's steady and solid, unlike those three prong bearing pullers," notes Colleen Lewis, noting that the tool is made of heavy-duty seamless steel tubing and measures 21/2 in. dia. and 7 1/2 in. long. Sells for $97.95. They're also working on a model for larger bearing sizes.
