Glad you got it off. Beware of small pin holes in stainless steel, the underlying cavity will be much bigger under each pin hole as in this shot of a broken shaft.

The only way I know is X-ray. Here is an example of a shaft X-ray showing how a small pit on the surface is so much bigger on the inside.

The simplest way to have fewer problems is to install a MONEL shaft if your SS needs replacing .

Sleeping better does come at a price tho.
