a) take the axle out the other end, then use a threaded axle or a big screw and clamp the tool to the cup with a big washer as others have described; if the axle won't come out that side -
b) use a Dremel with a cutoff wheel and cut two flats out of the exposed sides, put it and the frame in a vice. Clamp it like you mean it, your flats are likely not perfectly square.
