Sooo, you hit harder.
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.
