Mark Mandell - Gone Round In Jersey
>Thanks for the suggestions and advice.
Went with the Split Nut Method,to which I added a 3/4"id washer with a slot cut.
Pegged the spindle and snugged up the nut, leaned on the wrench . . *boink* out she came. Friend is getting another 1x8 nut to which I'll weld a 3/4"id heavy washer and, from now on, that little appliance will now go on the spindle BEFORE the spur drive gets inserted.
Strange (but fortunately) there was not a mark on the taper surfaces; no gauling, nuthin'.
Thanks again Group.
