a really big ultrasonic cleaner? It might be worth a drive to find somebody who could do that. looks like it's going to be hard to put any pressure on without damaging. the drawing makes it look like there isn't much surface area to bind but what's there is locked up by corrosion? A block of wood and some gentle taps on the open end with the persuader? break it free?
I tried tapping on it,I don't want to get to carried away with a hammer.
Was thinking of maybe putting it in my shop press, curious how much force is typically
needed to free it.
