Most people use a strap wrench and maybe some heat. Pliers if you don't care about scratches. There is a special tool that engages the hole in the collar nut, but I don't know where to get one.

How does one remove the round collar (nut)? I am not referring to the Barrel nut or Block nut since the plan is to separate the barrel at the hinge?
My apologies for misunderstanding. I haven't taken mine that far apart, but on the newer generations, as 850sub said, usually a strap wrench will suffice.

I use the small strap wrench: http://amzn.to/2lLlPm5

You should also be able to use the tail end of this multi-tool. The small nub would go in the hole on the collar. http://amzn.to/2lLvZmR

Thanks all, I'll give it a go with a strap wrench and heat.

I'm apprehensive because I have one with tooth marks that spun a bit and I don't think it loosened...Tom

you can also use a pip wrench to remove the collar. Just tape up the part or it will scratch it up.
