Default Easiest way to change wheel bearings on FG MT?

I`m about to change my wheel bearing on my FG MT. How do I get the old ones out and the new ones in? I saw that you could buy a special tool for this but I figured that this could be done without this tool aswell. Or do I need the tool?

I don't use a tool, if you have alloy uprights put a bit of heat to them sit the hub on a socket that supports the outer rim of the hub but will let the bearing drop through and tap the bottom bearing out working around the inner race . I use an old robinson or hex driver...it has to fit through the top bearing hole and you have to move the spacer around to access the inner race or you can tap on the spacer. once you have one out the other is a cinch cos you have alot more room. I never have any grief getting them out. In plastic hubs they come out way easier.
It's a bit fiddley, a job where 3 hands would be nice and take your time so you don't damage your hubs.
