Good stuff. The best tools are the ones that your already have!

Unless your mixer paddle has some magic properties I'm not sure it will help too much with the head-race bearings - do have a go though - I am prepared to be proved wrong!

do you think something like a solid metal cone would help to get them out, put the cone in and them tap the back end with a hammer

Except the cone has to go through the inside hole of the bearing on the other side... which doesn't work... or have I missed what you are getting at?

I could be rocking the boat a little here Very Happy
But I find that using one of these is perfect for the job. Of course if it's a once in a blue moon thing then just use an anchor bolt of the right size, tighten it up to the inner race and hit it from the opposite side.
