For the most difficult stuck B.B.'s I have successfully used a dremel tool with a cutting disc(you will go through 5-10 discs). Cut two to four slots in the cup to reduce surface area. Then use a small, sharp chisel to knock out the pieces. If you are careful you won't damage the frame. This is not a task for the timid or faint of heart! Robert St.Cyr
