Alan,
Is it possible to post your pictures on this forum. There is a chance that someone else has seen this type of arbor and spindle conviguration before. If possible try and photograph the spindle hole from both ends and the sides. If the spindle and arbor are one unit then how did the previous owner get the collets in and out? If the spindle and arbor are two separate pieces (and I still think they are) you may have to take the spindle to a machine shop with a hydraulic press and the ability to make some fixturing. But, before that, see if you can get your photos posted on this forum.
