    Come to think of it, a chain wrench might work and not leave the cap quite as badly scarred.
    I'll give that a go. Thank you

    The mill I worked in had a big metal bench made out of 3/4" plate bolted to the floor with various chain vices and chain wrenches. They also had an assortment of big pipe wrenches with cheater pipes and a torch. Sometimes it required all of the above. I bought the special wrench for the caps when I bought my seal kits.

    It's easy enough to make a wrench, or wrenches, but as you mentioned peakbagger, sometimes it still takes "all of the above".

    I bought the spanner wrench, 3/4 breaker bar. Trying to keep and spanner in place and apply cheater pipe. FAIL!

    You're obviously working by yourself, too. It's nice, I think, but in a case like this the extra hands could come in handy. So to speak.

    So grab your leaky cylinders, drive a bit north, and we'll have a cylinder cap busting party. Or maybe just a bunch of busted caps.
    Could be fun either way.
