    If you run into any problem getting it loosened up, I recommend heating up the flange with a torch - unless it is some some flammable chemical piping or such. I would use a rosebud tip on an oxy acetylene set up. Worked for me on some pretty old stuff in huge hospital boiler room. (60+ years old).

      I don't have an oxy setup anymore. I just use a B tank with a large turbotorch tip to heat fittings. I've used it in the past on large (up to 4") flanges and it takes a while but it works.

          It's an odd thing to have just lying around. What else is knocking around your place? <groan> Maybe you'll get lucky and find one of these.
