By using a solid tool the presses both the outer and inner races the bearing will stop at the sleeve and the outer race will be in the proper "float" position.
Guys (Redhawk & Joel) youre both quite right, something flat is better suited for the job. However I still think you might be able to load the inner race (of the problem bearing in this thread) with any kind of pressure from the floating side.
