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.
      You still running a special on appendix removal?

        I'm almost sure I've got a coupon from him for $50.00 off the first kidney removal as long as I sign up for some kind of annual check up plan.I'll have to check my coupon drawer.

            AHHH,
            The benefits of being a high school teacher.
            The only thing more pleasurable can be spending your spare time on the computer with a couple of bitter plumbers.

              Re: Cutting cast iron pipe

              Thanks for answering the original question somewhere amongst the childish attacks. Viable information is great.

              The responses from some of the "professionals" here merely reaffirm my general consensus on plumbing "professionals" to date. You guys all seem like a bunch of immature f***s who have egos bigger than TX, and I certainly wouldn't want any of you working in my house... and why do you have so much time to waste on attacking those who are merely trying to learn something new?

              I hope I never have to resort to paying anyone from your trade a dime.

              Way to represent your trade. Very "professional".

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.

                Count me in.Do you wind pick ups? The bridge p/u in the Les Paul crapped out.

                I don't mind helping a man help himself on the minor stuff.We all ask a hand of someone in another trade and become wiser on a given task or chore at hand.
                So....how about some home fillings repair.My toof hurts.
                What a peeing match we have here tonight! (Just remember "Electricity is not a hobby!")

                So!*only* 23000 odd looks at this little thread! Wow.Back to my iso drawings.

                  Oh boy... You don't have a clue, do you? When someone says plumbing or electrical work is easy, well it can be. Anyone with a pulse or a heartbeat can, after a fashion do plumbing or electrical work. But to say it is easy belittles a licenced professional's ability and the work he/she took to get there. Medicine is easy, I self medicate all the time, I don't need an accountant because I can add and subtract. People on this forum are willing to give advice to those who seek it, but don't belittle us when we "attack" someone who says plumbing or electrical work is easy after coming here to ask how to sweat a fitting or wire a three way switch. What do you do for a living? Do you freely share your expertise and experience with anyone who asks? If you do, and they say "that's easy" wouldn't you feel insulted after having attended school, sweated and went through the ranks to get to where you are now? I for one have 38 years in "the trades" and if it wasn't for us, you would be sh1tting outside by the light of a candle.

                    Sigh. I am starting to really hate people that come here looking for a free handout then crap on plumbers. Sigh. I am going to bed now. Then tomorrow I will do the unspeakable for the ungrateful. wait, I forgot, I don't do hardly any residential anymore, only as a favor. And they are grateful. Unlike the ingrates here.

                      here's the issue. this is your first post and the original question is 3 years old. unfortunately plumbdog has passed away a year ago june.

                      you sort of opened up a topic that is heavily debated here on this forum.

                      honestly, i can't understand why this would be your first post on a subject that was over a year old with the last post

                      if you do stick around and read the thousands and thousands of other post, you'll get to appreciate the input and discussion from all the members.

                      remember that forums are like politics. there are 2 sides to most discussions

                      the right side and the wrong side

                      stick around and contribute if you're here for a serious reason

                          Man, I've been feeling like this and wanting to explain it this way for a long time. To say that you hit the nail on the head is merely an understatement. good post dude.

                              what sewer tunnel have you've been hiding in?

                              we got a sneak preview last june 08 at the roundup with 2 different designs.

                              got to actually play with this model in june at our los angeles trade show.

                              sure is slick as there is no adjustment necessary for the pipe sizes.

                              it wouldn't surprise me to have a snapping session at the roundup.

                              the neat thing is the brains behind all the toys will be sitting in with us at the group sessions.

                              we learn from them and they learn from us. it's a win, win, deal.

                              i just plan on doing a little more winning than the rest
