My vices don't lend themselves for much good either.

This is, in fact, an excellent method and almost always works. If the vise is solid, the frame itself usually provides all the leverage you will ever need! The trick is to clamp the fixed-cup TOOL rather than trying to clamp the little flats on the cup.

A hot-wrench might help too but will destroy the paint.

Good luck,
