Just do not lose the tool because you will be using it again, and again, until there is nothing left of the seat to reseat and by that time there will not be anything left for the plumber to access to remove it so you will be installing a new faucet.

: Anyone attempting to remove a corroded seat from a faucet and finding that they are unable to do so with a seat wrench because the wrench grips are stripped should try resurfacing the seat with a "seat dressing tool". I got one from Home Depot ( approx $9.00 ) which included usage instructions. I had to repeat the process about 5 times before I achieved what appears to be an acceptable fix.
: It sure beats paying a plumber to come in and do whatever it is they do to remove a 40 year old seat.
