Default bearing removal

Is there a trick for removing the bearings from the blade grips?

Thanks,

Russ

They are supposed to come out using a feathering shaft and moving it in cycles applying a little force.
Sometimes they are really stuck and they won't come out. If they are damaged and they need change just use a hex driver and a hammer, reach the back side of the bearing through the blade and bang them gently.
If they are not damaged, apply some heat on the bladegrip (use a soldering iron). Don't overdo it or the bearing will be fried and ruined.

They will come out easier if you first use heat on the grips.
