If you have a 1/2 inch socket set, I would expect one of the larger sockets would do the job too, being metal they should not break whereas the plastic hozelock thing might.

Sockets can also be used to press bearings in and out. :wink:

indeed but the seal is quite soft and the use of plastic wouldnt scratch or damage anything unlike steel,just a lucky size too,well for me it was. :o :D
