I'm feeling kind'a dumb right now. I've stripped two of my bikes down in preparation of rebuilds. Both have Campagnolo SR BB's. On both bikes I can't get the fixed cup to loosen. I'm using a Park fixed cup removal tool, both bikes are English thread. Never had a problem before with any other bikes. Any tricks or ideas on how to get them loose without ruining the cups (functionality and cosmetics) or ruining my knuckles?

Thanks in advance for your help,
