removing exhaust pipe from muffler fast

I have a broken tailpipe that I have to remove from a perfectly good muffler. I have done it before (dual exhausts) on the other side, but it was a tedius process. I have an acetylene torch, mig welder, tiger saw, and just about anything else I need, unless there is a tool made specifically for this job. I would own one of those too, but don't know what to ask for. I thought I saw an air chisel that was made for this, but I thought that might tear up the muffler pipe too. Anyone seen anything like what I am looking for?

There is a air chisel made to do this. The blade is kind of shaped like a small tee. You put it in to the slot on the sides of the pipe, and drive it off, if the muffler clamp hasn't deformed the pipe to much.

If you have a torch heat the pipe red hot and it should twist off unless the clamp has crimped it too much.
