Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 28 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by If you're an idiot like myself a word of caution, DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN!!! Caution Idiots beware! On my first use of this tool I stupidly over tighten it and wedged it in the headset cups which I think now are a permanent addition to the tool (luckily i was able to bash them out of the head tube). I can't blame the tool which is well made and great value at the price, as long as you're not an idiot like me I recommend this to anyone in the need to fit a headset. 20 June 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Does the job it's designed for. The main thing we ask of tools is they do the job they were designed for and this does. It doesn't come with instructions (hence 4 stars instead of 5) however it's pretty easy to figure out how to use it and as it's half the price of others it is a good trade off. And it fits headset without the heart palpitations that would come when using a block of wood! It took a little bit of time to make sure the cups were correctly aligned but that is the case with any headset press. 17 June 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great tool and great value Gets the job done. What more can you ask for? Tool is sturdy and well made. Made installing my headset a breeze. Not as versatile as the more expensive Park press (which can be used on more headset sizes), but for less than half the price, it's well worth it. 10 May 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Built to last. Easy to use. Excellent installation. Very robust tool. Has an integrated thrust bearing to facilitate the compression of the headset cups into the frame. I did my first headset installation this afternoon, and this tool made the installation very straight forward - the headset cups went in smoothly, first time, completely aligned. If you have a work bench with a vice, this tool can be used by one person. However, if (like me) you don't, you'll need a friend with a 16mm spanner to hold the spindle, while you turn the handles. 16 March 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid + Works Well As others have said, an extremely well made item. Seems very robust - hard to think of its wearing out or breaking. No instructions in the box - but it's easy once you realise that the top handle can be unscrewed on the (heavy duty) thread on the main shaft. You then get everything in position (there is a simple locking clip device on the non-handle end of the item that can be set on the appropriate "step" on the non-handle end of the main shaft) so that the bearings are lined up with the head tube. You then turn the main handle clockwise, driving the handle assembly back down the main shaft - this drives the bearing in as there's nowhere else for it to go! For those like me who do not possess that immediate mechanical intelligence that some are lucky enough to have, some simple diagrams would have made an excellent product perfect. 31 July 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb piece of kit Made my first headset installation a breeze. Can't see what the, twice as expensive Park Tool tool, could do any different. Highly recommended!! 18 June 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by great tool also used this press for 1.5" headset. only need two thick washers to adapt this press to 1.5 headset. i got the washers made in local machine shop for $25. 19 October 2011

Answer: 
The outer diameter on the largest spacer on this tool is 50mm, and the shell diameter on a BB86 is only 41mm so you should be able to use this to press in a bottom bracket as well, yes. You may need to create a temporary spacer to help get a good purchase on the BB86 cups, but it should work ok.
