Default Re: Mill/Lathe

Was just reading up on press fit bearings. I did not know how much a difference heating the housing and cooling the bearing before insertion. Kinda cool lil tid-bit.

One author suggested that many motorcycle bearings fail due to a mechanic carefully forcing a bearing in. Thus removing material and causing "creeping"

Any one do or have done press fit bearings?
