If you've ridden on it at all, its probably too tight to remove with a hammer and punch.

Buy the tool. I know, more money, but you'll probably use it again and again.

Also, even with the tool, it can be a pain to get it off. Wrench will fall off, can't get enough torque, etc. Even with greased threads, SOME just don't want to budge no matter what.

I taped the removal tool to a cheap adjustable wrench, put the tool on and with a track nut loosing holding in, stand the wheel up against something so it won't roll, and stomp the wrench handle with your heel. Fastest way I've found without a good sturdy vise and without breaking a sweat.
