Ok so I'm trying to get a freewheel off my station hack.

I've got the correct tool, have used the skewer to secure the tool s to stop it slipping but I can't get the damn thing off with a wrench. Wisdom says stick it in a vice and use the tyre to get some purchase - only I don't have a vice.....

any alternatives or should I pop my head around a garage door somewhere and say 'scuse me mate can I stick this in your vice for 5 mins?

EDIT>> The vice in the LBS did the honours
