Help!
jet screamer 1400 shaft removal.

I need help from someone who had replaced or disassembled Jet Screamer 1400 70mm version.

I need to remove the original shaft off the bell. So far, both set screws are out.
Shaft will not even move at all. I tried heating the bell, but too much heat may cause problem with magnets, so couldn't heat too much.

I've tried hitting the shaft from outside without luck. Don't want to damage the bell as it needs new shaft going in.

Any idea on how to remove the shaft?
Thanks,

Take a longer tubular object, I use deep socket wrench for example, that is large enough to just clear the shaft and put it up inside the housing. That concentrates the pressing forces on the area around the shaft.

Then use a vise, press or even a hammer to force the shaft down through the snug fitting hole. If you use a hammer, put a softer piece of metal on the end of the shaft and strike that, don't strike the shaft directly.

And make sure the housing is not resting on the ends of the magnets or it might break the magnets loose from the housing.
