I had the crank firmly bolted to a board, and a 6' long fence post type pipe to work with, but all it got me was frustrated so I chucked the grinder into my drill and went that way instead. The thing I dislike about changing out to a wide crank set is the loss of pedal gearing, going from 3 to only 1 sprocket.
