Exclamation [B]Cutting down an existing hot water baseboard heater???[/B]

I need to cut about two feet worth of pipe/baseboad out of an existing hot water boiler system. the section is in the kitchen where I need the extra two feet to instal a new set of cabinets... How do I go about cutting this section out and reconnecting it (aftering making it shorter) to the system with the least amount of trouble??? Please Help ASAP my wife really wants her kitchen back and this is an unanticipated delay in my plans... THANKS!

Cutting Baseboard Heat

ms_hammer: If you have the normal type of residential baseboard that should not be a prob. you should have a end cap on it. Take cap off measure, cut and replace cap.

That is not the hardest part, the supply line usually runs the whole length of the baseboard, that means it has to be relocated two ft. over and reconnected. Luck
