I am having issues removing this bottom bracket from a vintage Falter 3 speed bike. For once crank arm removal was super easy, cotter pins came right off. However, struggling with this one. I imagine I need to remove cone but spindle keeps rotating. Perhaps using vise on opposite side any advice more than welcome thanks enter image description here

    All done, reinstalled the opposite crank arm which game me leverage and then unscrewed clockwise. Thanks all
