You don't say how old the bath is, but if the waste has big nut on the underside my guess is it is pretty old. If you can hold the nut with stilsons, it may be possible to turn the waste as you suggest with scredrivers and using a bar as leverage.
Sometimes you have to cut the nut off with a hacksaw or as I do, with an angle grinder. Not funny!
