Unfortunately the end of the axle is slick, i tried to drill it but my cheap bits have only scratch it (I love so much to drill hardened stainless steel , like the cogs) ! Plus, if he's free in the hinge it would be very hard to drill... And the frame is hard to keep in place while drilling, I think about some machining assembly to maintain it into the vice under the drill.
The hinge have already drink a lot of WD40, the axle can move on ~5mm but it block just before the end of the hole. I used the dremel to enlarge a little the end of the hole but it's not enough...

Seems the best thing to do now is to weld something on it and pull.
