I used the Sheldon Brown method on a very stubborn Italian cup. Used a long 1/2 inch drive socket and a cheater bar. Very scary. THEN I had to take the cup with attached Sheldon apparatus to the auto shop guys at school to rescue the cup. It was too tight for my shop to handle.
I don't do: disks, tubeless, e-shifting, or bead head nymphs.
