Default Old Bosch 1604 Bearing replacement

Having trouble getting bearing nut off to allow me to release armature and get to the bearing that is squealing.

I can get a wrench on it but then no way to keep the armature etc.. from moving.

Always a trick - hoping someone can clue me in.

welcome N/A...
strap wrench to hold the armature shaft....
armature shaft clamped between two blocks of wood..
take note to see if you are dealing w/ a left or right hand thread...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Forget the primal scream, just ROAR!!!
