I am in the process of restoring an old 14" bandsaw. I would like to disassemble it as much as possible and clean each part and remove as much saw dust and rust as I can.
My first major step is to remove the upper wheel but it seems stuck.
I have removed the nut in the middle and applied what I thought was a reasonable amount of force but it remains where it is.
I don't want to apply to much force or bang it because I don't want to damage the bearing or the bolt.
Any ideas on how I can remove the wheel?
