Removing a stuck filter

Checking: are there persons who've removed a badly stuck filter before.

Specifically, the lens filter hit a hard surface and got dented - and can't be removed now. Lens was thankfully fine. I've tried unscrewing by hand, and using filter wrenches - but the filter just won't budge.

Short of sending the lens to Sony service center, are there services or specialists around here who can remove it, e.g. sawing the rim of the filter off?

Freezing Upp Thomson/Mandai!
Went Canon, they removed it for me for free easily after the BW filter corroded with salt water

Try this lens filter wrench clamp. It worked for me when I had a filter jammed quite badly.
Sorry just reread and realized TS already tried it.
