Hi; I have a vertical 2 inch cast iron vent pipe that I need to remove to install a medicine cabinet.
I have cut it in one spot with a sawzall, but there is also a joint in it where I would like to separate it. The joint appears to be poured with lead. If I heat it with a propane torch to get it hot enough to melt the lead, the lead may spill out into the framing inside the wall. At 600 some degrees, I am concerned that it would cause a fire. There is no room to get a roller cutter on it.
Any ideas?
Thanks, Ken Wallace, San Diego
