The ebay seller cannot remove the blade, I suggested the usual steps I use - - (WD-40, Heat, etc)I did ask his address to see if a member could help - - that blade will be trashed if left on

 If he took the  back end off the motor , could he grab the rotor and (assuming he found , loosened & removed the set screw ) could he not the twist the blade off with the rotor held stationary ??  Last ditch effort , have him get 2 stiff pieces of cardboard or formica , cut to 12" X 12".   Notch one so it will slide over the blade hub behind the blades and cover the back of the blade. Place the other one in front of the blades , drill or punch holes X2 thru both pieces , between each pair of blades then wire or string tie the front to the back between each blade and have him ship the motor padded well , on it's back with support under the blades or up against the side of the box with the motor blocked up from the bottom of the box with foam rubber. That makes it hard to bend a blade cause the other 3 are helping keep it in place. I'd also be sure to tell him no hurry on your part and you'll click "arrived on time" if that appears in his feedback. ePay places no importance whatsoever on the quality of the seller's packing job. It's all about timely delivery of goods. :X

He got the set screw off & the blade came right off. & the delivery time is always an issue, many times the stuff is already packed & "ready"
