Jack --This nail method works great. Start with a 16d framing nail and no need to grind the head. This is a slow, two beer exercise. As for support on the bottom of the hub, buy a stout PVC coupling from the plumbing section of the hardware store with a diameter smaller than the hub shell. Set the hub on the end of that PVC. Good support; not to hard; not too soft.

Jack- A lot of guys will just use a big old nail a common headed nail large enough to go all the way through the hub. The head is ground down in diameter to just fit past the race's axle hole, the head is placed up against the back of the race and the pointy end of the nail gets hit with a hammer. Move the nail about the race's circumference and "walk" the race out

with multiple whacks.
