Wilton VSG20 drill press disassembly


Dec 12, 2015
I need to remove the shaft that carries the driven variable sheave. I’ve removed the roll pin, top half of sheave, and belt.
I tried lifting out the large spur gear, it slid up but there wasn’t enough room to remove it.
I removed the speed adjust crank and the set screw behind it that screws into the shaft in question.
It looks like I need to put a gear puller on the lower half of the variable sheave and slide hammer it out, but I’m afraid to damage it.
How is this supposed to come apart? The parts manual had some info but nothing about how to remove this shaft.
