I haven't used a press on a rear spindle in several years now. All I use is the spindle knocker, hold the arm at a 45* angle, and use a 5 lb hammer. 5-6 shots will drive them out and not damage anything in the process. The press is great to final install them.

We used to it the same way as GTR1999 until my builder got a piece of steel in his hand that was 8 mm long. It was a piece that came off the knocker when the sledge hit it. Now I only use a press to remove them.

That sounds pretty nasty. I have to admit I've never seen that with the knocker I have here, I don't even recall where I got it years ago. The press will work no question but I think there's less chance of a problem with the hammer. Some use a large slide hammer to pull out the spindle too. To each his own as long as it's safe and doesn't break anything.
