Correct on all counts Rod. Faced with this problem I made a tool for the job. That's the advantage of being an engineer first and a wood mangler second.
Busy with other stuff at the moment but will try and take a photo later today when I'm allowed some workshop time.
Terry you would be welcome to borrow it but I would not want to be without it for too long.

I have two Allen keys that came with my saw, the end on one is shorter than the other and I presume that shooter one came with the longer arbour, as it means it just clears the saw table so it can be inserted below the table and then turned so the handle end is above the table.
I am going to Wickes this afternoon for some penetrating oil so I will take the Allen key with me and see if I can find a length of suitable pipe that will simple slip over it without too much play.
Thanks for the help.

I think I might ensure use of a top quality allen key and some better tube to take out the flexure.
My hunch is that the taper will be where it is sticking rather than the thread but that is only a hunch.
Getting some heat on it has got to be worth a try but I don't know what sources you have got. Ideally you want a short sharp thermal shock rather than pour in lost of heat and end up wrecking bearing seals.
Really not sure what the best approach would be with your facilities to be honest.
Heat the area around the bolt with a propane torch, and touch a candle to the threads. The wax will be sucked into the opening around the threads, and the bolt can be removed easily. The heating and candle application may have to be repeated a couple times. This works on the same principle as "sweat-soldering" copper pipes, and will work where penetrating oil will not. (Always use care when and where you apply heat)

just putting this out there, in case no one has mentioned it :-)
