    Go ahead and clamp the arbor with vice grips. If you destroy it you can buy another one. You will not be able to replace the spindle so be careful with it. It must have come loose a little or it would not have been able to rotate it in the spindle. Make sure you apply PENETRATING OIL which can be purchased at a hardware supply store.
