vintage Nutone blender jar disassembly

Aloha from Hawaii!,
I've a vintage Nutone food center, circa 1958 in which the plastic, rose colored blender jar needs some TLC.
The blade shaft is stuck and am trying to figure how the blade base is disassembled for diagnosis.
I hate to toss it for sentimental reasons...
Has anyone attempted this?
TIA

I Googled "fix nutone vintage blender" and got a lot of helpful responses. I would definitely not throw it away, as there are a lot of fans of midcentury modern that I'm sure would be interested in fixing it if you find that you are not able!

I am actually considering installing a NuTone system in my 1955 home kitchen when I do the remodel.

A little history on this particular food center, my Dad purchased it when he built the house in late '58 to early '60, there wasn't enough countertop space in the kitchen so it sat in a closet until he expanded the indoor patio to include a wet bar in '68. That is where it is installed now.
I had to replace the powerhead assembly sometime in the mid eighties but kept all the attachments, I still have the original powerhead stored away in it's replacement box. The house was considered "Hi-tech" at the time, we also had a Nutone intercom and central vacuum system

My Dad was supremely proud of the house when he completed it, it features 6 bedrooms and 4 baths and is just about 6K sq./ft. under the roof.

Mahalo for your response!
