This "X" ??

Hmmmmm...."however the HE** you can"...that's the answer

I know that's no help...push it with a sharp chisel, maybe it will dig in enough to turn it.....dont spend a lot of money on this chisel....it will probably be done for when you're done........if it even works.

If you have access below, you can cut through the drain- between the nut and tub with a sawzall. Works pretty good
