undo ABS fitting
i messed up the angle on a 45 degree elbow. i've already chopped it out.
to redo means chopping out quite a bit of plumbing, as there are a bunch of 45s and a T glued together with no pipe.
is there any way to remove the glued-on piece within the hub of the intact 45, and redo it, or is the only way to chop it all out back to the straight pipe. pretty sure i know the answer here...

buy one of these to extract plastic pipe from fitting hubs They're called Ram Bits

ABS (or PVC) fittings are so cheap, I can not see the justification of spending any time or money on a tool to save a few fittings. Cut it out.

I think he's trying to save work of redoing a lot of plumbing...not just save a fitting.

thanks guys.
i did indeed wind up chopping it all out back to the pipe and redoing.
maybe $30 in materials and a few hours labor to complete.
