Remodeling - like all of us are I removed all kitchen cabinets and all pipes from the sink. Problem is I have installed new cabinets, countertop, and now I need to get an old rotted rusted pipe off the wall drain. I know I should have done this before cabinets were in so I could get some leverage to get this thing off, but I'm an idiot. I have tried pipe wrenches and a hammer, but that didn't budge it. The question is what tool should I try to get this pipe off?

Hey plumber, my buddy (props to "Rick from the Hospital") came over and noticed the piping was cast iron - he says it will just break off. So i grabbed a hammer ( I thought he was nuts) and hit it 3 times and the pipe broke off no problem.

I take it this pipe will no longer be used, then sure enough a hammer and cast iron were the combo to be.

A sawsall, ok I thought everyone knew what these looked like.
