Hey, I resemble that comment. By the way, the method works very well.
Find a socket that just fits inside the square of the crank arm.
Put the socket on a cement floor.
Place the bike over the socket so the socket is inside the square of the crank arm. Have someone hold the bike.
With a flat punch and a BFH (big f@cking hammer), hammer on the crank arm as close as you can to the bottom bracket. Put a big flat washer between the punch and the crank arm to protect the soft metal.
