In response to Re: glued_pvc
: : : I've got a 1.5" pvc drain pipe glued to a 3" (3x3x1.5)dwv stack that I want to remove carefully enough to preserve and reglue inside the fitting hub. I can cut the pipe flush with the hub, but need to remove the remaining inserted/glued pipe.

: : : I can imagine carefully using (slowly so as not to melt the pvc) a 1.5" hole saw, but...

: : : Is there a 1.5" saw or specialty tool to specifically cut out this pipe or can someone recommend a tried and true method?

: : : Thanks for any info,

: : You cannot use a hole saw. There is, however, a special drill bit made just for this purpose. Check with a plumbing supply house.

: Could you leave a 2"stub and couple it to the new pipe?

I was thinking the same thing or possibly a mission or no hub coupling
