wheel bearing packer source

I'd like to install my new slotted rotors this weekend along with some new bearings. I've been looking for a decent but still cheap wheel bearing packer. I've found an expensive one at napa but over $100 seems like a lot for a simple tool. I'd prefer not to use the palm method if I can help it. Anyone know a source for a simple packer?
Thanks,

If you have a grease gun, you can pick up one of those inexpensive packers at Harbor Frieght. I think I paid $10-12 for mine.

You put the bearing in, and pump grease through the zert fitting.

Agree with the manual method. I've been doing it for years. It's a little messy, but I think my car appreciates the human touch.

Any of the major auto parts stores (e.g. Pep Boys, Kragen) should sell a simple bearing packer for less than $10.00. Here's a pic of one I randomly found:



Of course, latex gloves and patience are even cheaper.

Happy Packing....
