Not seeing exactly what you are but I suggest a small easy out if you have a bit of a hole. If that doesn't fly then try the sharp corner of a chisel at the extreme edge and striking it with a small hammer so as to rotate it counterclockwise.
Once you have a bit of a notch from the chisel,then use a small tipped punch in the notch and continue to try and get it moving counterclockwise.
For the most counter-clock force, you lay the punch down as far as possible without it jumping out of the notch when you strike it.
Sometimes a center punch at the edge works well.
It's like kung fu . . . put all your focus on the point you want to move counterclockwise and use follow through. :) This post was edited by Tall T at 10:20:56 07/08/14.
