Replacing bearings on storm 2
« on: February 01, 2018, 07:01:52 AM »
To get the old snap in bearing out, do you just squeeze the bearing inward and push it in toward the table? I haven't attempted to remove yet so not sure how difficult to remove so just wanted to see if anyone has replaced these?

Use a socket that's slightly larger than the bearing. When you push the socket against the perforated edge the bearing will collapse and recede into the hole and then you just push it out.
