I've done the trick with two cuts of a hacksaw, never used a torch, but my Milwaukee heat gun works really well in this situation...softens without burning.

Does anyone own the Milwaukee pipe cutter? My tendonitis has been killing me lately.

I mean the PVC Shear.

Geez, if my helper knew about that PVC shear I'd never hear the end of it until I bought one.
Of course he'd probably lose it or break it in the first week.

Like the others have said either melt it and pop it out or use a hacksaw blade. Both work fine for me..

Sounds like the stub wrench has you covered up to 1".

A golf course guy taught me the melt it out method on 2". I havent seen many stubs that size.
