    Not talking about the hex bolt, talking about the socket head cap screw here.

    Download the manual. Then lift the spring and hold it up with a nail thru the hole in the main square shaft. Then as Smingler says remove the allen head screw.

    You can't rebuild the press with out the Manuel. MEC has a PDF file for it.
    If you can't take it apart how are you going to put it together.
