I thought about it some more and although a tool would be nice I figured it would be simple enough to make one and save quote a bit of $. Parts I used:

2 x Paint can openers
4 x Fender washers
3 x Wing nuts
1 x bolt & nut
1 x mending strap

Without permanently attaching the fender washers to the paint can openers the thing was just a little too wobbly to work with. So I ended up silver soldering the inside fender washers to the paint can openers. Less wobbly and easier to work with. This allowed me to pull the impeller out with ease.

The parts above totaled $6.19 at my local hardware store. The silver solder I had laying around the house.
