I have never needed to resort to heat, as I said. However, comma, but, my "reasonably stout attempt at cold removal" varies from Paul's by about 70ft-bs with a standard 1/2" breaker bar. That said, I'm sure Paul has seen more tight rotor bolts than I have.
My rotor bolt has been used on about a half-dozen tight ones and shows no sign of wear or stripping, which would indicate I should have used some heat or other means of gentle persuasion. And that's after it has been around the country a few times and used outside my control.
My rotor wrench has witness marks on it but is not marred or gouged.
If you fall into the Clydesdale class I doubt you'll need heat, so long as the rotor wrench has a good hold on the rotor and a strong stop. Just scaling the HT picture it looks like the HT wrench is the same length as the Eagle wrench. It should be fine.
