As some of you know, I have an EFP. I just bought a new set of pan and roll bearings for my gimbal, and replacing the pan bearings was a snap.

However, I can't see a nice easy way of taking out my roll bearings. It seems like they're stuck or I haven't seen the microscopic grub screws that need to be loosened to get them out. I've done a forum search but no joy, the annoying thing is now that my pan bearings are new, it's obvious that my roll bearings are no good, since no matter what I do I can't get the rig to pan flat through 180 degrees.

Is anyone able to point me in the right direction?
