In response to Re: Can't remove old bathroom faucet
: I'm attempting to replace my bathroom faucet (circa 1972!) and I can't get the nuts to budge. I put DW 40 on it overnight. Any suggestions? I'm worried I'm not strong enough to use the basin wrench? (obviously, I'm a chick. I was able to replace the drain plumbing ealier, and it made me think I could do this. I've gotten the water line partially off - and can't get it back on. So now I'm pretty well committed to finishing the installation.) Please help! :-)

Unless you are some frail little thing, you can use a basin wrench--I can bend the turning bar and I am a grandma. There is no magic to this. Sometimes they are really rusted on and have to be cut off. If I get a particularly bad one, I usually pull the sink, it is sometimes alot easier.
