- It probably goes without saying that you don't want the heat source to be so close to the hub that you damage the paint or too far away to take forever to heat the hub. Maybe about 3" between the heat source and the hub?
Again, I would not rush out to buy one if you don't have one available and I suspect few of us have one available but for about $25 you can get one from places like Amazon which are intended to help decorate cakes but will work well for something like this.
- This method also made it easier to relatively uniformly heat the hub for the bearing install.
