Hi , Alan I'm lost are you wanting to replace the bearings in it ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have ordered the new shaft because the "star" that fits the blade "hole" was destroyed. I want to get the old one out. Is there an easy way to hold the shaft to turn the nut. The bearings are probably fine - will inspect when I get the shaft out.
