You are correct. I have not acted on this. I like to evaluate things first and take sound advice to avoid damage. I am going to take your advice regarding making a barrel wrench for the tail of the spindle. I am considering using aluminum for the clamping part to avoid scoring the tail. The clamp in the picture you included looks like it was made from steel and used a collapsible sleeve bearing to avoid scoring. Thanks for your reply.

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).
