    Re: Drum Traps/Can Traps

    Any of you guys use the Golden Tub Extractor Tool?

    It's like a internal pipe wrench that fits on a 3/8" ratchet, it works real good.

      New item added to shopping list...good tip Aaron!
      I'm assuming it's like an ID pipe wrench that tightens inside the diameter and grips?

          that tool looks great aaron, only thing, when you spin it and it breaks the tube connecting the shoe to the tee, it will just spin the whole shoe around

          It is on my list of things to buy, I'll let you know

            for the tenth time. this is how to safely remove a stripped shoe

            use a dremel or it's bigger brother a die grinder. install a 1'' cut off wheel and cut it from inside the tub. no vibration and if you have a good wheel with a fiberglass core, it will be off in less than 1 minute. a sawzall can chip the enamel especially if you slip.

            now robert, how will you make that video if you can't find tapes either

            hope you're not too wine and cheesed up when you reply

            thanks for the try. you saved me a trip as i was calling to tell you i was heading your way. at 6mpg it was a big savings. also checked i have 15 tapes still. good for another month.

              LOL!
              I've had that happen once or twice.
              Then ya wind up inserting a cresent wrench or 1/2" steel pipe into the stub below with something solid to brace it to.

                I cut it from underneath using the sawzall I left the link too in my past post. I cut it between the tub and the shoe, where the rubber is. I remove it in approx 1-2 minutes, no problem, never tried the dremel or grinder, will have to put thought into that.

                  I remember once a few years ago, I was in line at the supply house with 1/2 dozen other plumbers all talking about the correct way to plumb a house.
                  We all fully agreed on the exact same method.
                  And I'm the pope.

                        Duck- Anytime, Yes sir that is the tool I was talking about. Sometimes it turns all the piping underneath, and sometimes it doesn't. Either way, it's still a wonderful, yet expensive(just bought mine the other day at Somerville for $53) lil tool. It grips extremely well.


                        Da- thats the one boss.

                          P.S. once your installed and tied to the drain, go back later and unscrew to add the putty, the gasket is already done from the beganinning
                          Sounds good. It seems like the few times i've done them there was absolutely no room for the new shoe to turn. Also crawling under the house and back out can be such a pain in the A#$! I think i'll just continue to make my brother tag along and make him go under the house.

                            I have been in the same situation, when I cannot turn the shoe, I will do a balancing act on the overflow and when it is hanging, run inside and stick my finger in and bracket it, the start from there and run the tee and then balance the shoe and set it, either way, it has to happen , cause I am by myself

                              Aaaah, sweet cynical reality!
                              Just grinning remembering some horror shows of the past...running up and down stairs a dozen times trying to figure out how to get the stupid thing to stay put so I could turn it loose above.
                              Then there's that point where it feels like the new one is starting to tighten a little too soon and you wonder "Is this thing cross threading?".

                                I have a tool, called a dumb bell, works great, when someone hasen't already tried it before.

                                the sawzall that goes 20 differrent directions is the porter cable, it adjust's alot of different ways so it will fit in tight spaces and between rafters etc.

                                Had one,it did come in handyonce in a while,but unfortunately the tranny snapped,as I have done to a few tiger saws over the years.So now its the Dewalt $100 sawzall with the four direction head and long metal blades for spuds.And the Dewalt is much lighter
