I just got an old 3-speed for some parts but cannot remove the front wheel. The threads on one of the front axle/nut are stripped. The nut will turn but it won't move along the axle so the the front wheel cannot come off the fork. I tried to pry that tang washer off the fork but there is not enough room for it to come off.
Other than taking an hacksaw to cut the axle, are there other better methods? The axle/nut are no good anyway.
