Need help geting crank pully bolt off.

There might already be a thread on this but I cant find it. I am having a mother of a time getting my crank shaft pulley bolt off. Ive been trying for the past 3 hrs. My friggin air compressor keeps blowing the fuse in my house as soon as it hits 115 psi. I even tried plugging it into a different zone in the house and it stilled keeps blowing. Ive tried three different impact guns at 115 psi, Ive tried heating it up around the outside of the bolt, and using a breaker bar. Ive sprayed bp blaster and let it soak. I cant find a pipe anywhere to get more torque leverage. And you can't use the bump the key trick because the pulley spins counter-clock-ways . I've heard these things can be a bitch sometimes, but damn, cant I catch a break! Any tips or advice anyone can give will be greatly appreciated.
P.S. these things aren't left hand thread are they??? (opposite of regular threads) Ive been trying the lefty loosey way.

Re: Need help geting crank pully bolt off.

Thanks for the help. I couldn't find that tool quick enough cause I needed it like that day. I finally got it off by going out and buying a chain wrench with a big handle to wrap around the crank pulley and let the handle rest on the lower control arm while i used a long breaker bar with a 4 ft steel pipe that I also had to go out and buy from Home Depot. First try it popped free. (it did leave a little gouge mark on the pulley where the chain wrench was holding it, but i filed and sanded it down and don't think it will be a problem)
