I was browsing through utube as I often do just to see what I can learn. I ran across this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ocsnUBYEyuM and wondered what some of you thought about this guys method of putting a bearing on a shaft. I realize the shaft he has is different then the one on my band saw but I was curious about the method in general. I was especially interested in his method of heating the bearing.

Very good method. He is totally correct about ovens for heating bearings. There are bearing ovens to expand the bearing to fit over the race. His method is perfectly safe for the bearing.
And he is really careful to avoid galling or bang the bearing on the center to avoid any lateral pressure on the bearing.

What you witnessed is a good way to install.

Hey Shawn, nice video. I wondered who this could be done. I don’t think I am ready to jump on this yet but someday it will be another challenge.
