I haven't had to chisel one off in a long time. I first attempt to remove it from the inside. I don't force it too hard so I don't break the hub. If unsuccessful, I pull the lint housing and attack it from the back. I have some big channel locks, put the handle ends down into the fins. I use a pipe for leverage and twist the blower clockwise until it breaks free. I haven't had to chisel off a single one off since I started using this method.

My 85 year old father actually (welded up and made a Blower Wheel Socket) that goes over the fins of the Blower Wheels that he used for the last 65 years when he was in Business. I'll be dammed if I can find it, If I do I'll be sure to post pictures or have dad make a new one with pictures then I'll post it. Then hopefully I'll take orders - lol...
