Stuck Pipe

Unread postAuthor: Atlantis » Sun Jun 18, 2006 10:39 pm

I was putting pipe together looking for a nice layout for my next cannon and a chunk of pipe got stuck in a tee, the pipe has paint on it. I need a way to get the 2 apart, they're pretty hard to get apart. Could I use pipe cleaner or primer, or should I use soap or something. Myabe I could twist them with 2 wrenches.

P.S. I don't have a vice grip.

I had this problem, spray some G70 in the fitting,then get two people and wriggle it from side to side, if you do this for long enough it will come apart.

well if the pipe is stuck in the center part of the T (the part that is perpendicular the other two sides) then just sit on the ground and put your feet on both sides of it and pull and twist like theres no tomorrow!

If it's in one of the side openings, hold it really tightly with something, stick a screwdriver in between the ipie and the lip of the T, and whack the screwdriver with a hammer.

No matter what situation, a hammer and chunk of wood has never let me down.

Wrap a boiling hot rag around the outside of the tee rite where the pipe is stuck and start pulling rite away, when it comes loose quickly take the rag off. The heat from the rag will expand the pipe only where it needs to. Thats the best way i know.

P.S.: Handle the boiling rag with pliers so you don't burn yourself, dhuaaa!

that's funny! (sorry, people generally enjoy hearing about other people in pain, its human nature). i nearly smacked myself in the face with a 4" endcap once.
that would have left a big mark, prolly wouldn't have much of a face for that matter.

i wanted to blow out a stuck pipe with air pressure once but i decided not to.

Heh, once while working on a stun gun box I got a shock through my hand and the vice I was working with. The shock didn't bother me at all but my arm smacking into the tool chest behind me because of the uncontrolable reflex hurt like a [female doggy].
