It's gotta be pressed butt. Gotta press the shaft thru the lower clamp.

 Cut the outer race first, then part way through inner race, it should knock off then

Use a dremel to grind the outer race, remove it along with the ball bearings, carefully grind the inner race to weaken it and a few blows with a sharp chisel it should pop off.
