A large C- clamp is used to depress the piston into the bore, no grinding is needed. what did you grind, the spacer in the bolt hole? After you press the piston, wiggle the caliper off.

If I am reading this correct, you have removed the allen head retaining bolt but can not get the pin ( flat metal bar piece ) to slide out. There is a spring ( more like a retainer ) that presses down on that piece. Spray the whole area with liquid wrench and try hitting around the area with a ball-peen hammer to loosen up the rust. Once that pin starts to move it will come out pretty easy. I had the same trouble getting it started to move.
