Kitchen Sink Basket; stuck lock nut
Posted by Glenn Ray on May 20, 2002 at 23:39:51:
I'm trying to replace a corroded kitchen sink basket but cannot remove the lock nut underneath. Have tried just about everything except cutting tools (including hammer/screwdriver against the tabs; large groove pliers on it while having the basket held in place on top; WD40 soaked overnight).

Any other lubricant I can use to possibly loosen it? If not, how can I break it down (i.e., destroy it) without damaging the stainless steel sink?

Stuck in Houston....
