    Are there any of the cheaper ones that are any good that will fit a 56 lower cup? I’ve looked at a fair few and none of them seem to out of the box.
    I know you can use threaded bar and washers etc, but that’s still a bit of a fiddle trying to get the cups in straight, so I’d prefer a ‘proper’ one with stepped mandrels to at least try and keep the cups centralised.
    CRC would be good as I’ve got vouchers…

    Would it be worth taking to a lbs as it’s a bit of a one off job?

    I use the bolt/ huge washer tool myself. A bit scary but it does the job if you just take it really slow and check alignment as you go.

    I’ve previously used all of the above, but I’m currently switching headsets a fair bit, so I’d like the actual proper tool for the job to minimize risk of damage.
