    I have used a 1 x 42 belt sander and let the rod spin in my gloved hands. Use the friction of your grip to control the spin.

    I wonder if some mechanic hammered the rivets into holes for a face spanner so nobody could make adjustments. Try a strap wrench on the OD of the part with rivet heads.
