Boice crane oss

I purchased a boice crane oss that works well and has been in storage for some time. I have downloaded the users manual. I can’t figure out how to get the Sanding spindle out of the machine. The spindles are tapered with no threads.

It may help you to elaborate as to what this machine is, since it may be obsolete or out of production. Photos may help. If you have photos on your computer, you can upload to this site by dragging to the box below to attach.

Is there a slot for a drift key to pop the spindle out?

Can't help with your issue, but I missed out on one here locally about a year ago, CL seller flaked on me.

Would like to see pics of yours as the one here was a really cool looking machine.

ETA, I did a quick google on "Boice Crane Spindle Sander spindle removal", landed me on the manuals at vintagemachinery.org.

Looks like they are "quick change" spindles and have a morse taper at the bottom.

There is a reference to an "ejector tool" it is #55 in the second pic, looks like a wedge of sorts...
