Not my first choice, but locking the sprocket down onto a pair of wood blocks with screws and washers (careful not to score up the sprockets) would allow you to do this with one tool instead of two. Just make sure to have a relief in whatever you secure it down to so you don't just bend the sprockets. It may be easier to elevate the ends with a pair of blocks rather than cut a relief.

It may also be easier to get that off with the shaft inserted 90% of the way back into the frame. You can even start to screw on the DFB if you need some help keeping it from sliding out.
