claw-foot bath faucets
I just changed out a faucet for a claw-foot tub. Simple enough but the new set came with plastic faucet handles. The cust wants to reuse the old ones, which amazingly, fit. However, the cold-water handle is bonded so tight to the cartridge I can't get it off. I tried heating it, WD-40 and a puller. I also tried hammerring the cartridge out from under the handle. Is there some sort of solution I can use which would ease the bond without destroying the chrome finish or the white metal?
