Is there a hole in the spindle that you can use a knock out bar through? If so, then tap that drive center out that way.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

If it's the same model as mine, there is a hole on the outside of the drive head. It came with a steel rod (about 9" long) with a round handle on one end.

Push the rod through the hole, then tap it very gently with a large hammer and the spur drive will pop out.

Wear a work glove on the hand that is going to catch the spur drive -- they can be sharp (DAMHIKT )
