In response to Re: Removing a bathtub drain - problems.
There is a new tool that works by expanding against the inside walls of the drain, but it is somewhat expensive and if the drain is too tight you may break the pipe underneath the tub. At this stage, I would consider cutting the drain out to avoid any serious problems.

: OK Terry, I followed your advice and bought a barbell type tool to remove the drain flange. The flange started to move, but it was very tight. Then the first of the crossbars broke. Now what? - if I try any harder they will all break. Having broken the seal I imagine leaving it in will result in leaks?
: Any ideas?
