Chaplin:

PC Blaster or Kroil penetrating oils might free it up. I had a faceplate with a similar problem and it turned out the the slot in the arbor was a little tight on the pin in the head stock. When I tightened it I guess the threads bound a little. The PC Blaster worked but I had to apply it several times and let it sit for a few days.

Just an idea…
Tom
