Todd,
In a previous post I mentioned putting the thermostat in a vise to remove cap. Just place the cap in the jaws of the vise and turn the body of the thermostat with your hands. You'll be surprised how much torque you can generate turning the body versus trying to turn the cap.

Put soft aluminum plates or wood slats in the jaws of the vise to prevent scoring the cap.
