    Are you talking about the wooden portion? You can use the open end of a wrench to straddle the lever (metal arm). Hit the wrench with a hammer using the open end to contact the wooden portion of the handle to remove. Or you can simply remove the two bolts and nuts from the linkage.

    Of course this is assuming you are refering to the 9000 series.

    Thanks! I removed the bolts, but it's going to take another hand to help me open up the bands to get past the middle shaft. Help is on the way!!
