Headset cup drifts for use with the Wheels Mfg Headset Cup Press. 1/2" thru hole. Drift is machined with steps to fit common headset cups with 1-1/8" and 1-1/2" bearings. May work with other size cups. Not recommended for use with Wheels Mfg PRESS-1 or PRESS-4 handles and rod, which have a smaller 3/8" diameter rod.

  • Machined aluminum
  • Red anodized
  • 1/2" hole for use with Wheels Mfg Headset Cup Press (PRESS-8) only. Not for use with our PRESS-1 or PRESS-4 handles.
  • Headset cup drift fits the following Inner Diameters:
    • 1-1/8" (30mm)

We do not recommend it for use with our PRESS-1 or PRESS-4 handles, or any other press with a rod diameter less than 1/2". When used with a smaller rod, it is almost impossible to prevent the cups from pressing in straight.
