Having trouble getting a wingnut loosened from the toilet bolt. Have tried Navel Jelly, WD-40 and other lubricants,have even tried to gently tap the wingnut with a hammer to loosen it. Any suggestions on how to get this loosened?

Use a small pair of vie-grip to grab the very top of the bolt, loosen the nut. You'll have to replace it, but it'll come off.

I had one that I had to hack-saw. It's always a close fit, but can be done, even if you have to remove the blade from the saw and just use that. (wear gloves)
