I used a knife and put it in the gap between the mag and the bottom plate and then beat it with a hammer till they split.

Then I used like 10 screwdrivers to pry these pieces apart that shit was difficult.

Once separated I used sand paper with fine grit, did it by hand I didn't want any gouges and wanted to ensure a clean finish.


Just waiting on a 6 spoke 18" basket so I can make the alignment and continue with the build.

Anybody want to sell me one?

I cleaned it for one.

The other real reason is that I'm going to reverse mount bolts through the top plate and mount the basket to them with nuts and spacers.

To realign the motor I am using threaded rods to guide the top plate which is attached to the slugs.
