I bought a Raleigh International a few years ago, didn't notice that the fixed and adjustable cups were on the wrong side. How that happened is beyond me, but obviously I wanted to remove them. I used an angle grinder to carefully make some flats on both sides of the adjustable cup, filed them down square, and clamped it on my big vise. I was able to unscrew it. The fixed cup came out the same way, since it already had flats on it.
