Have you tried a pipe wrench to twist the rod?

Interesting idea!  I’ll run and grab some to try!

Grab a can of "Dust Off" or whatever brand of canned air, turn the can upside down, and spray down your axle pusher-outer rod at the tip (try avoiding the axle, please). The liquid propellent is at about -30°F and will hopefully shrink the steel rod enough for you to knock it out of the axle. 

My axle pusher-outer stick is made from a wooden dowel with a point on it; got stuck last time I used it, too. Luckily it was wood so I just ripped it out and made a new one.
