Adding thrust bearings to your press removes friction making the pressing action dramatically smoother.
Our thrust bearings are sold in pairs. Each thrust bearing comes as five parts; the ball bearings themselves are held in a brass cage, a hardened race is installed either side, and then a washer is added outside of the races to provide strength and support.
The thrust bearings can be used with any of our presses, including our frame and hub presses, bottom bracket presses and headset cup press. They can be used with the T-bar handles or the simple nuts, and can even be combined with our Press Extensions!
