Well after some searching and many dead ends, I think I found one. Stormer Hobbies had 1 left in stock.

I generally don't have much confidence when there is only 1 left (it is normally an inventory glich), but when I purchased it, the inventory system changed it to out of stock so there is some hope.

I paid a little more than I wanted ($170, plus shipping), but if I get it, it will be worth it I guess.

You will never produce any metal shaving while pressing a bearing in. The bearings do not have a sharp edge. I assure you when you send a engine to any company to have warranty work etc they do not use a oven. But the oven method does work. They use something like the GRP tool. I also am pretty certain the bearings are pressed in when the engine is built new. It's a much safer way than using your oven. You can do it at the track, in a hurry, etc. We do a lot of engines at my shop and I love the ones we have.

10 years ago Maxy was using tools like this to do bearings and you know he knows the ins and outs of engines.
