We have a special castle nut tool that was made to allow us to tighten and loosen the castle nuts that hold the spindle in. I made a new castle nut tool; the old one was aluminum and, well, it broke. This one is steel and should be a lot stronger. Oh, and machining steel with a cheap Chinese HSS bit = bit going dull half way through the operation and having to replace it.
