Subject: [CR]Freeing up seized spoke nipples?

I have an old wheel with what look like alloy spokes and nipples. (Old Campy sewup.)

Several spokes are seized up. I turn the spoke wrench and it just acts like a spring---nipples won't budge.

Any good way to free em up? Torch? I've squirted with Liquid Wrench so far.

Thanks. --JP --
