Broke out the longest cheater pipe we had (more than 3 ft IIRC), I stood on it, then HE stood on it (he was MUCH bigger then), then we both stood on it together and broke the socket. That stupid castle nut just laughed at us!
IDK how he ended up getting it off, but those were some good times.
I've stood on the end of a breaker bar a couple times since then, and it never ends well. Most recently I completely stripped one of my hitch bolts and ended up cutting it off, but before that, I was standing on the handle of my breaker bar trying to get the nut to turn off. It was a piece of crap anyway and needed replacing long before I ever got my fat fingers on it!
