I have removed the silver knob that you use to stop the needle's motion as well as the washer underneath it, but the hand wheel itself is just..... stuck. The wheel turns smoothly enough, it just wont come off the machine. I have tried adding sewing machine oil and heating it up a bit with a hair dryer in hopes of loosening it, but no luck.

Am I missing a screw or something? Or if you think it's just rust/gunk, are there any tips for safely loosening it?

Photos attached of the current state of the hand wheel with the knob & washer removed. Thanks so much for your help!
Hey,did you solve it?

Try oiling at the pink line and between the inside of the wheel and the main body.
