everyone here’s going to have an opinion on this…here’s mine.

1. It’s jammed in by rust. There’s a number of items on the market, and PB blaster is one I can recommend highly. I used it a few years ago to loosen a frozen nut on a 1964 Cadillac.
You can get it at an auto parts store. Just follow the directions…you may have to leave it on overnight or for even a couple of days.

2. It’s been “galled”into the barrel of the lathe, by force. Lots of room for error here.
I’ll let others comment on that.

Best of luck….let us know how it goes.
