Removing sink pop ups

Never had great luck removing the drain outlets on sinks. Is there a trick, I always end up just sawing them off. What tool should I use?

Removing sink pop ups

Little more detail, are you just trying to remove the pop up or the whole drain?
Both should be about a 5 min. job unless where missing something.
Got a picture so we can get an idea on why your having so much trouble.
