My sincerest thanks to all who replied with a huge assortment of great
methods of freeing up the knob's death grip on the shaft!
It may have been a combination of many of the suggestions, but the
method that finally saw the knob being vanquished was......
<< drum roll, boys >>
I wrapped both jaws of my channel lock pliers with a ton of black rubber
tape to keep from scratching the capacitor shaft, clamped down as hard
as I could on the pliers, and used a TWISTING motion on the knob with my
other hand...and lots of force...
VOILA!! YEE HAH!
Off she came!
And a beautiful sight it was! *grin*
Oh, and to the one who suggested "prayer and fasting," I hadn't ruled
that out!! *slight grin*
Ron - K5MVR.......and happy again!
