Fay, there's nothing like a decent pair of stilsons:

But, seriously, go easy with the spanners or what have you, they can make a complete mess of things very quickly.

I have 14" stilsons and a mole wrench you can borrow if that helps, be careful though I don't want them all bent or broken.

Fay,

Does the new tool/s vibrate?  You might need something that vibrates to get it off.

Fay,

Have you tried lubricated the threads?  It might prevent it becoming quite to locked next time.

I think black boot polish, a small touch, or silicon grease works, but an absolute minimum, and dont get it on the optics.
