Can't fault it for the money
Bought this to remove an interference fit (tapered) front sprocket off a Montesa 348 which are notoriously troublesome after being in place for 38 years ...
This little sucker did the trick in seconds so very happy with value (12 quid), features (it's a gear puller - it does not make toast), performance (it did the job) and reliability (it did not break).

Needed a puller to remove inner wheel bearing shell stuck on stub axle - after an online search found this and I have a local Screwfix.
Pros - I think the price is pretty fair and although it didn't manage to remove the bearing it didn't break after I applied considerable force: a 2nd bearing shell I had welded to the stuck one to get a lip for the puller actually cracked first.
Cons - The arms are all a bit loose/sloppy even after tightening up so getting an even distribution is a bit tricky though not a real problem. The arms are of a rounded profile - no nice crisp edge for them to grip small lip so I may simply grind flat
I'm sure it would have done the job if the bearing shell hadn't been quite so tight - had to use an angle grinder to cut off in the end

Great puller can be used as two or three leg external plus internal what a versatile tool, takes pride of place in my tool bag.
