Subject: [CR]Stuck bottom bracket cup... help


Can anyone help. I have a bottom bracket cup I need to remove that's stuck and I can't get it to unscrew. It's the type often found on Raleigh bikes with what I think is called a wrench flat (a strip across the middle), it's too flat to get enough grip with an adjustable wrench and I don't have a workbench that I could use a vise to try and get more grip with.

Can anyone tell me what park tool would fit. if they do one that is? Or is there an easier way to tackle it?

Thanks for any help.
