Just smack it harder

GGRRRRRRRRRR! Try replacing a pair of pivot bearings on an Orange Patriot when you’ve not a lot of time and you’re blessed with a fuse as short as mine. One of the bastard things just won’t budge from the pivot. I’m sure I’m going to be cussin’ and swearin’ when I come to “lightly tap into place the new bearing”, but for now I’m trying in vain to smash the existing bearing to atoms with a large hammer and a chisel. Don’t worry. It’s only a frame that cost me more than a year’s food shopping. I’ll have another go in the week. Then I’m into “borrow Dremel from Warren” territory. Whatever happens, I’m NOT TAKING IT TO A SHOP.
