Hi All....I'm in the process of remodeling my bathroom and I can't get the tub spout off to save my life. It has 45 yrs of hard water deposits etc. It is a screw off type. Any tips for me to get it off without damaging the pipe? It does spin counter clockwise right?

Also...the drain flange also won't budge. All I have are 2 nubs inside the drain to use to spin it. What kind of a tool would work well for this?

Any advice...pleasssse?
