How to disassemble a #2 Merriman Winch

How do I back the slotted nut off without the special tool.

Have read articles but my winch handle does not fit. Maybe cross 2 flat heads but don't want to damage the pauls/springs.

Any thoughts?

I crossed two large flathead screw drivers... two hands to brace them, and apply gentle pressure to just get it started. It has worked OK for me without scarring the slot.
