Bob, To remove a cog, or a freewheel from a threaded SA driver; Remove the driver from the hub, then put a piece of 5/16" bar stock or plate in a vice, slip the driver splines over the bar, and use the FW remover (or chain whip for a cog) in the usual manner.

5/16" can be hard to find, but 1/4" will work.
