    You still did not answer the question. What is your occupation? Maybe some of us will need advice from you. You got free advice here, what do you offer those who contributed?

    My guess is zero.

        Thanks for the info

        I just registered so I could log in and thank the helpers for this info. I'm pretty handy and have tackled some projects that most people would hire a pro to do, but never ran into iron pipe. Copper, ABS, PVC: no problem, but how the hell do they cut this stuff when its jammed into a wall?

        So I googled the question and wound up here and I'm happy - I LOVE my reciprocating saw. I remind my wife of Jack Nicholson in The Shining with it, so she's not going to be thrilled - but I' happy.

        I'm also thankful and, as was requested, if anybody wants to know the dimensional difference between a Martin bridgeplate in maple or rosewood, let me know.

          PLUMBDOG..I am self employed. I own a few small businesses from dry cleaning to financial services. When I see a thread that I can provide some information on, I post a reply.
          there's a solution to every problem.....you just have to be willing to find it.

            Finer9998,

            Finer,

            What you are saying is that you own several businesses, but you can't hire a plumber? Obviously you have no clue how to run a business. You did not budget for mechanical repairs?

            If you are an expert plumber and electrician (based on your post), why are you on this website?

            You have nothing to offer anyone here. I certainly would not take business advice from you.

              To those of you who give sound advise based on experience, Thank you

              For those of you who think because you have a license or certificate, it makes only you qualified to give advice I would remind you that this country was made great by people who had the courage to do things themselves and not depend on "all the kings men" with " his majesty's permission" to do the work. None of you who live west of the Alleghenys would be there otherwise.
              If you want to get a certificate that guarantees you income for life, go to France. They even riot when they have the possibility of getting fired from McDonalds!!
              Those that hide behind a certificate, degree, or current occupation only show their insecurity in their own knowledge. If something is factually or legally in error, say so. Problem solved. To attack a person's integrity or credibility based on what they are currently doing just shows your ignorance of how much a person can learn and know about problems that they have faced in their past.
              Many people who come to this and like forums can not afford the price you require to do your work and make a living. But, they still need to survive and fix their problem. To you its a plumbing/electrical issue. To them, the dollars you charge may well be dollars they need to eat or get their required medicines. When you get on the "hire a professional" theme, others who realize that may not be an option give advice.
              From someone who has almost six decades on this planet, been to over thirty different countries and experienced their "hospitality" , been to almost every one of these 50 United States (never been to Maine or Vermont), and thinks this is the greatest country on earth to live in, despite being literally spit on by this country's more "enlightened" and "self righteous" after coming home from a year in a war zone at this country's bequest:
              Get over yourself and contribute something meaningful. To be more direct: "Grow up!" You got an adult's job, start acting like one.

                when i started doing plumbing about 25 yrs ago i started by just handing a friend fittings .and to this day i never went to school for plumbing or HVAC .

                i never had to be certified . and even if i was that does not make a deferents.

                i think we are all hear to help others with the things we know better then they do and hope that they can help us or someone else someday.

                if we told every one to hire some to do the work then why should ask for or even log on here ???

                so if some of the licenses or is certified and does not want to help then do not respond

                thats my 3 cents

                    Gofor,
                    Well said! We see too many sacrosanct "experts" taking shots at somebody in these forums because they don't have the correct pedigree. I could not agree with you more.

                          This buy far is one of the dumbest answers one could give. You spent more time writting stupid replies , then worrying about the pennies you lose for NOT getting the Job.

                            Welcome to the forum.
                            If it appeases you, take a glimpse through Utah's posts...though I'm sure he's nowhere near the professional you are, he does have some accumen based on a "wee" bit of experience.

                              Mr. Gofor, By your reasoning I must only surmise that you feel that lawyers, doctors, dentists, structural engineers, and architects should not need to hold a license either. Or is that somehow "different" Let me remind you that the plumbing "profession" is over 2000 years old and is not a trade, or occupation. It, like the above is a true profession. So next time you have a tooth acting up, or need a spot of surgery, why not come see me? I'll be more than glad to hack the problem out.
