We are swapping out a wall hung sink for a pedistal and the existing horizontal drain pipe for the old sink sticks out too far from the wall , not allowing the pedistal to get close enough to the wall.
Also the threads are nearly gone... not sure what happened but they are all corroded and half missing! The rest of the pipe seems solid though.
The pipe is 1½" iron pipe (determined by measuring OD of 1.9" exactly)
Can I just cut off the end to proper length and put some kind of slip compression fitting on it?
