Amazon review, lol... that awesome!
Care to share the link with us?

Sooo, you hit harder. :P
No, not harder, but smarter  ;)  I hit the shaft hard enough and often enough with a hammer to mushroom out the end of the shaft.  And it didn't budge at all.  But, with two taps of a sledge, the shaft literally falls out.  It required very little force.  Hitting harder didn't do a thing, yet hitting smarter - using the right tool for the job - made for an easy job.

I have one of these from Harbor Freight. Hasn't failed to knock the shaft out yet.
That looks exactly like the one I used.
