s/a fm lefthand ball cup removal

Has anybody any ideas how to remove the left hand ball cup from a s/a fm 4 speed rear hub according to my master catalogue a special tool(DD11182) is inserted from the right hand side which engages the splines inside the cup to remove it from the shell
Is there any other way of removing the ball cup other than this? there are no flats on the outside of the cup to grip in a vice and i feel the chances of finding a 50 year old tool remote
Any help would be gratefully receIved

No suggestions other than if you have a pix of the tool and it is a fairly simple
splined male version of the cup, if no older bike shops are around that might
have such is to check out the local model engineering groupies around for someone
who might have a go at making such a tool. England is chockful of such types
and should be a club close by. Steve
