Motobecane variator fixed cheek removal.

hello.reverse nut is removed. im assuming cheek is also reverse thread? i put it in a vice, cheek side face down horizontal but it still moves when i try to loosen it. its damaging it and im afraid to over tighten vice and fold it a bit. should i torch it? i have penatrating lube on it. getting frustrated. any clean good ideas so i dont damage it?? ive tried a few from previous posts. help me out?! youd think there would be a solid way. again i have it in a vice so its like a upside down plate on its edges. seems its going to bow if i tighten vice more to grip it.thanks (edited)
