N Jen, No, don't tighten up your expanders! You can damage the bearings by over-tightening these. Make up a barrel wrench like shown here (mine is a 2" x 2" hardwood handle 3 feet long with another 4" of the same material bolted to one end, drilled for what ever you are going to clamp on).

In the case of old South Bends, grab the tail end of the spindle.
