    I tried the PVC tool and never got it to work. Tried a lot of times, and every time the PVC would slip before cracking the nut. In the end I cut a shifting spanner down to a small size and that worked a treat. You may not get enough leverage on the nut, but i just tapped the shifter with a hammer. I know this is pretty dodgy, but hey, it done the job.
