Abstract : A ball bearing assembly device for permitting dry assembly of bearings without additional equipment. The assembly device is provided with an inner body surrounded by an outer body so as to create a circumferential gap therebetween. The gap is provided with a vacuum connection which allows positioning of ball bearings on a ball bearing shaft or inner bearing ring when the shaft or ring is mounted on the inner body. The bearing shaft is placed into the inner body so as to provide a mounting to aid in insertion of the bearing shaft or ring into the outer bearing ring. The bearing shaft may be mounted on a reciprocating shaft for insertion into the outer bearing ring.
