I assume that the inside of the allen bolt is stripped. If that is the case, you may be able to loosen it by using a small vise grips on the outside of the bolt head while using an allen key on the inside of the bolt head and turning both the allen key and the vise grips at the same time.

If the threads of the allen bolt are stripped, you may be able to rotate the spindle nut with (surprise) a vise grips.

Of course, you don't want to damage the threads of the spindle.

I don't think that I have ever seen this kind of problem on anything I have worked on.
