how to get stuck wheel bearing out

So I bent and destroyed my right passenger side axle shaft awhile back. I finally got the old one out and noticed that the wheel bearing had partially welded itself inside the housing. Any ideas on how I can clean this up and get it out?

I used heat and cold chisels for removal which of course will destroy the bearing. I apply ant-seize when installing the new bearing.

Have you already tried a slide-hammer bearing puller? If that breaks the bearing up I've seen some use a dremel with metal cutting wheel for removing the race stuck in the axle housing. But you have to watch you don't cut into the housing itself.

There are various attachments for a slide hammer to remove this stuff, like mentioned above, or a 2 to 3 jaw puller, there are also adapters that make and almost full circle that spread out as you tighten them up (blind hole puller), these would work better if its just the outer/race part of the bearing that's left. I would think the local auto parts store would have these on loan/rent if you didnt want to buy.

This, this or this. They all would probably work with a slide hammer.

Depending on how much bearing is left is going to determine what tool to use. But a BFH, lots of heat, and a chisel can usually get the job done.
