bearing press / arbor press

I just picked up a small 1 ton arbor press. I need it to remove/install some small bearings ~ 10mm - 30mm range.

What I still need is some type of pieces or fixtures that will make the correct fit between my bearing and the square arbor. What are these pieces called? I'm trying to locate a set of small sizes and I'm not sure of exactly what I'm looking for. Any clues appreciated. Thx.

I've always just called them "adaptors". A socket the correct size usually works well.

Mandrel and die perhaps?

yup...sockets work great. Fashion a pusher that sits in the socket so you dont push on the socket opening. Just use scrap bar stock.
