hey! hopefully someone can help me out here

i run a sealed fit cassette hub. i've taken off all of the nuts and bolts leaving just the driver and axle, but i can't seem to get either out. tried tapping the other end of the axle lightly with a hammer, and i've tried using WD40 to loosen it, but it won't budge. any ideas on why this might be happening/how i can get them out?

They're supposed to be a snug fit, the driver should come out fairly easily though but you have to pull it straight out (not at an angle). You could tap it a little harder with the hammer and see if that helps. Whenever I strip my hub (which has been a fair bit lately) I just hold the wheel and smack the axle on the floor (onto an old towel or rubber mat so i don't damage the axle)
