I am going to try Loctite Freeze & Release and if that doesn't work, some other chemical-based penetrating oil like Liquid Wrench. I don't know if these will help you if you've already worn the recesses of the rings, though. Please let me know how you get on.

Unfortunately no, I haven't solved it yet (wow, nearly a year later, how embarassing!). I'm considering having the taps chopped off entirely, but it's seriously a last resort...

I had a go at this last night, but the flange doesn't reach high enough to let me get a spanner (even my thinnest one) in to reach the spindle. Damn it!

Thank you, this is a good suggestion. I'll definitely try it and see. Unfortunately, I suspect I won't be able to get the flange high enough to accommodate a spanner/multigrips to reach the spindle, but I've got my fingers crossed. Cheers.
