    Apply a few drops of penetrating oil on the shutter at the retaining ring and let it set for a few hours.
    Clamp the lens board in a secure bench vise using blocks of wood to prevent marring the board and clamp it by the edges of the board.
    Using your best spanner and both hands unscrew the retaining ring.

    I have this strap wrench set, http://www.sears.com/craftsman-2-pie...2&blockType=G2 and often just wrap the rubber strap around the stubborn item and grip the rubber without using the handle.

    Thanks for all the excellent suggestions. I'll give them a try later when I'm in the right frame of mind.

    A piece of PVC pipe that will slip over the barrel with contact cement(dried) or other grippy stuff on the surface may give enough grip on the ring.
