    Is this what I need to get a shimano deore cassette off in order to 'service' hubs?

    I've also got a chainwhip tool and the cone wrenches coming. This was the only thing I wasn't sure about.

    When I meant shimano deore cassette, I meant that the cassette was on a deore hub.

    Or this?

    Also, where is a good place to get 1/4 inch bearings? Is this something you can get in Home Depot, etc?

    If you have a cassette, this is the tool you need. Freewheels and cassettes are different. Look Here to see the differences between the two if you aren't sure.

    Nope, that's a freewheel remover. You need a cassette lockring tool like this: http://www.parktool.com/product/cass...ring-tool-fr-5

    Ok, is the one Parktool FR5 better with the guide or without? The guide version is 2 extra bucks. I don't mind if it makes things easier.

    TIA

    Mine has the guide and it works well. However, I don't think it's a deal breaker either way. I'm sure it will work fine without.

    I missed your question about bearings. I just bought a bag of 100 on ebay for like $7. Much cheaper than the bike shop. I think I bought from this guy: http://cgi.ebay.com/100-1-4-inch-Dia...item1e5696900f

    I'm not sure that's the sort of thing Home Depot would carry, but you could try. If you have a bearing supply store near you go there.

    you dont need a guide. you can use the rear quick release and put it through and clamp it down to help hold the tool in place.
