Anybody have any hints for getting old steam pipes apart? I'm looking to convert a single pipe steam system back to its original configuration. The house originally had one steam system and it was modified to have a boiler for each apartment unit. I want to go back to single family and back to one system. The pipes don't come apart with pipe wrenches. Is there a safe was to crack the fittings with a sledge hammer and not crack the fittings I want to keep? Should I cut the pipe close to the fitting cut the inside thread portion and peel out the thread? Any experience in this matter is appreaciated.
