This is how I remove the stators from stamped steel Wesinghouse fans. Requires a welder but seems easier than drilling and punching method. It's a frame that is just slightly wider than the motor but narrower than the body/housing, a piece of steel is drilled and dropped below the stator and a bolt put through, another piece on top, with shims as required, and the two are bolted together, forcing the stator out. Done a few this way, one was still tight enough to make me nervous to use heat I believe, but popped out several others without it. Be mindful that the steel below the stator doesn't shift and start to pull up the rotor hole, damaging the laminations.






In the last photo there would be a block of wood, etc between the frame and top steel to allow room for the stator to pull up. Here's one I just rebuilt after taking apart years ago - 



I know they're not as desirable as most brands and this is still a PITA, but hope this helps some people down the road regardless and keeps some antiques alive.
