I once used an eight foot long cheater bar combined with my VAR fixed cup tool to break loose the frozen fixed cup from my Woodrup that Georgetown Cycle had really cranked down. Not a mark on the VAR, and still going.

Is the Cinelli actually better than the Var, or it just costs more? If you care to try it, I'm sure you can tear the threads out by the roots with my Var. It's also a monster.
The best tool to install a fixed cup was the two piece tool that Cinelli made. It featured a heavy 'wrench' cylinder that the fixed cup slotted into, and a 'holder' that went in on the other side. You then honked on the whole shebang with the attached handles. This tool is a monster! I would like to get one someday.
