I mean, I just use the magnet to sort of surgically guide the balls into where I need them to be.
I'm doing just about all of the above, plus more.JackRabbitSlims wrote:
if you're overhauling / servicing a headset / BB / hub that still uses loose ball bearings - you are either cleaning up the surfaces / replacing the surfaces / cleaning up the existing balls / replacing with new balls / cleaning out the old grease / packing new grease & then making adjustments for the perfect fit.
looks like we are neither here nor there with the magnet - your choice on that one.

I'm using marine grease to pack the balls being it usually rains a lot in my area - specifically this one. http://www.amazon.com/Sta-Lube-Marine-Trailer-Bearings-14-Ounce/dp/B000KKLLPS
I like the color of the grease, but, is this a bad grease to use? Should I just not be doing this anymore?
