The drain in question is the Brass No-Caulk type w/Stainless Steel Strainer.
I am having trouble getting the darned thing off. With some WD40 and a lot of elbow grease I managed to get the inner sealing nut off, but I cannot, for the life of me, get the nut that sandwiches it onto the shower off.
The area is too obstructed to get a wrench on it- or any other leveraging tool for that matter. I've tried WD40- tapping the ears with a punch and hammer, to the point that I chipped the flange of the fitting. Nothing works.
Are there any other secrets anyone knows of to bust this thing loose?
...the frustration ensues....
