    ..Not really but did a job at a locksmiths house a while back and couldn't cut the closet bolts because of the recess of the toilet bowl..He went and got his dremel..Yes..another tool to carry just in case..Don't know if I am going to watch Hanson and dateline tomorrow..
    I will probably be watching Ax men / swamp people ..love those shows..Hanson is pretty good at setting up those scumbag child molesters though ..Predators going after minors on the internet then get set up..They should let the parents pop outta the closet and beat the crap outta them..Now that would be worth watching

      Amen to that. Do you believe that some of the people caught have seen the show and still try this. That's insane.

            I don't know anything for cast iron that fits on the outside hub. They do make some clay fernco adapters x abs/PVC that on the clay side will fit around the outside of the cast iron hub then transition over to your ABS or PVC. I have done tis before. Sometimes u can heat and stretch a fernco but there is no need to do this. Remember clay x plastic schedule 40 . I thought you were going to use the service gasket, bevel around pipe and insert. You can do it .

                  I was planning on using both, as this is a finished basement, and I don't want a leak.

                  The outside dimension of the cast iron hub is 5 7/8", the outside diameter of the ABS is 4 1/2"...I can't find a Fernco adapter that fits these measurements?

                        Rich, I wish I was there to help you. Believe me there is a way and a fitting that will work. I thought you were going to use the gasket insert, bevel the edges on the ABS, grease it up and push the abs in. Sometimes you lay a 2x4 across pipe and hit it with a maul. It will go in. Did you try a 6x4 fernco .

                          I see all these different sizes. What size are you guys using for 4" C.I. ?

                          Today I think I used the sawzall for the last time on C.I.

                          Our chain cutter miraculously grew legs and disappeared, and I'm not using our snap cutter because I don't want to create a bigger problem. I see you all talking about grinders, and I'm ready for a change.

                            I only have the 4 1/2 dewalt corded and cordless. It works great. If u r in a floor cutting a horizontal I start the cut with a grinder then finish with a bimetal sawzaw blade, if I have a lot of trouble when I get to the bottom I switch back to CI sawzaw blade. If I have access all the way around CI then grinder all the way. I am done with those cutters, both kind. Put those cutters away Flux .

                              Before I started using grinder I would use sawzaw. I would star out with CI sawzaw blade as soon as I see some hollow I switch to a brand new bimetal and it cut through like butter. When u get to the end u can always switch back to CI sawzaw blade.

                                do y'all prefer a grinder to snap cutters on new pipe as well? or only on older pipe for repairs?

                                I use a 4 1/2 corded with a diamond blade; works, loud, slow for new pipe.
                                This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.
