robertj,
The 36mm wrench from Menards cost $18 and works quite well. It is long enough to give plenty of leverage when removing a fixed cup that is a bit stubborn. Smiles, MH

Don't be afraid to attach a pvc pipe to the cup wrench for leverage

This is the tool you seek, IMO. 45 year old Sugino that never fails.

And the way it is deployed so it stays in place while using a cheater, with the frame securely held in place so you can really lean in when necessary.

I wholeheartedly second the sugino! It puts any other tool I have used to remove a fixed cup to shame. It also has a way better grip on bb lock rings than you can get with the standard park tool.

That is one tool that will never leave my arsenal so long as it survives.

It will outlive us, I may have mine buried with me in case I need it after the fact.

It seems to me that it wraps around the lockring, compressing it to hold and overpower it.

It is the best in the business as far as I'm concerned, as is The "Mighty" Sugino Mighty Competition crank, every bit as strong, tough and beautiful as any other.
