I come back to this thread months later to report success. Some urging made me give it another try. Used a micro torch sitting in it’s base on high, and two large pliers. After a bit of elbow grease and twisting with it in direct heat, heard some squeaking and eventually it came loose. Now I have a working tail stock bar :D Thanks guys.
