Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous 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!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous No vale para semi-integradas
He comprado esta herramienta recientemente y me he quedado decepcionado pues no vale para instalar direcciones semi-integradas, o al menos no vale para mi dirección FSA. He tenido que encargarle a un tornero un par de piezas adaptadas para poder utilizar la herramienta. por lo demás es de buena calidad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Solid piece of kit that should last and save cash
I bought this along with an M:part headset and Xtools headset remover and it's a pretty robust item. Combine it with the Xtools headset remover and you've got a formidable pair of tools that are a must if you like tinkering. If the only tools you use are the ones in your pack then don't bother with either but knowing that I will be using this tool for years to come and it will still be going strong when I pack it all in, for me it gets top marks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous For the money, excellent
Not a mechanic, but build up and take apart a lot of bikes. In recent months, used properly, this tool has been indispensible. Compared to alternatives (e.g. Park Tools) this is well priced for such as substantial feeling workshop tool. Has just about paid for itself, based on quotes from LBS for pressing in headsets to some of my frames.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous nice tool
I think this is a very good tool, but I had no money for it. So I install my first headset by using a long bolt, nut, a pair of steel disks, a pair of wrench and a bit of graphite lubricant. And headset fits good. But if you can buy this tool - buy it. This is better what you can buy for this price. And using the tools always gives better results.
