It would be a pretty big or specialized shop to have EDM stuff. It's
a nut. It will come off. If worse comes to worst, use a chisel
against the edge of the flats. It helps if you make a nick with a
sharp chisel and then use a dull one to apply torque. Big Big F*&%
$ing Hammer (BBFH) and a bit of technique. Just be sure you're
loosening the nut, not tightening it.
