Thanks, guys. Will try the rag first, then with screws into filter. Looks like will need to bring the wrench inside to the drill press and modify it. Lots of good ideas. Will try tomorrow for the filter again. Let you know as soon as I have it off. Rainy today anyway so not good for riding here.
If you punch a hole to start a screw into the filter can oil will drain out of the filter. Be prepared to catch the mess.
