Not familiar with the saw, but you might need a gear puller for that.

Which way did the nut come off?
We do segmented turning, not because it is easy, but because it is hard.

If I recall correctly (my bandsaw is almost half a century older) it was an ordinary right hand thread, and I did use a bearing puller to take off the wheel.  Be careful to pull very straight and not damage the wheel.  I think I probably sprayed with penetrating oil, put a little force on with the puller, and let it stand, tapping every so often, and periodically tightening a very small amount.  It usually takes a while, then comes off all of a sudden.  Brute force can damage the wheel.

Nut came off counter clockwise.

Use a propane torch to gently heat the wheel hub, not the shaft. Aluminum has a higher expansion rate than steel and this should free it up.

Got it off. Neighbor came over, wedged 2 screw drivers behind wheel, put nut back on but not tight, n hammered shaft while pulling screw drivers outward behind wheel close to shaft. Worked great!

Like the farmer who asked his car-chasing dog, "Now that you've caught it, what're you gonna do with it?"
