Interesting that you mention locking the sprocket down onto a pair of wood blocks with screws and washers. I was thinking about trying that as a backup plan if I can't get the lockring to loosen with the chain whip and lockring spanner. I have also considered running pieces of wood dowel through the holes in the big ring and into a piece of 2x4 underneath and see if I can just use the lockring spanner. Hopefully, I can get it to loosen with the chain whip and lockring spanner. I shut that effort down until I got some input from this forum to make sure it really is threaded and I am turning in the correct direction. I did not want to risk damaging any parts. I'll give it a go this afternoon and report how it goes. I have already learned to wear gloves to do this
