If you can get the shaft out with the prop on, you probably won't need a prop puller. Just take the nuts off of the end of the shaft, put a little piece of plywood on the ground (preferably concrete), turn the shaft upright (vertical) with the prop at the bottom, and drop the whole mess straight down onto the plywood nice and sharp a few times until the prop pops off (watch your toes!). The plywood should keep the shaft threads and the prop hub from getting dinged up. If you can't get the prop off after a few drops, apply some penetrating oil and let it set overnight (maybe give it a bit of heat, if you want), then repeat.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
