Removing V brake Bosses.

Best method anyone?

I've done a seach and it didn't throw up anything. I trying to switch my Vees from one frame to another, but the new one does not have the bosses. The bosses on my other frame are screw-ins, but their screwed in tight.

I used vise-grips but I wasn't planning on using Vs anymore. I would think the right sized wrench would work. Maybe 8mm?
