Default how do i get the bearings out of a oneway?

i need to get the bearings out of a oneway, and re install them later. reason being i want to anodise the alloy case of the oneway.

can i use a oven and heat the onway unit up and just pop them out?

also, when putting the oneway bearings back in will the heat damage the anodising? what is the max temp i can go before it starts affecting the anodising?

it's a pritty specific question i know, but if anyone can help that would be great.

I believe your best bet is freezing it. The cold will shrink the steel more than the alloy. I know somone who tried, but only one came out in good shape!

Good luck

actually tamiya LITTERALLY based their design, (if not purchased the rights infact) from tech racing. the "Medusa" was the original 41X design.
