Deckel FP1 copy issues

Do you know what STUCK means ??
Cold welded. There is pleanty of horror atories on the matter to keep one awake at night.
I have got a lovely old lathe which which I'm restoring. All went well so far but the chuck release nut (an American short taper or the like) didn't budge at first try. I let it be for now but will have to return to it, fingers crossed.
 
I managed today to get the adapter out.
As suggested I made a nut which fits the adapter and then I welded a plug at one of its ends.
Then I put the nut on the adapter and i supported the spindle with two rods. Using a long bar I smacked the nut from above for 3-4 times with a hammer and the adapter fell down.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Still a lot of work with this old mill :)

If all else fails, get a bigger hammer. Glad your sorted, looks like you've a major refurbishment on your hands with that machine and plenty of drama ahead.
Cheers Adrian
