Could the steel nipple and cast iron nipple have fused together?


Here's a closeup pic.

Don't know if you hit the joint with PB Blaster, it looks pretty dry. If you have and it did not work, Locktite has a product I have used in the past called Freeze and Release. Spray it on the male end and it shrinks a little. The only time I needed the product, it worked when other products failed

Doesn't look like a lead joint, at least not to me.

Re: Removing plumbing to install sheetrock


Use a torch and get it nice and hot. Try the melted wax method. Another thing that helps is vibrations for smacking it with a hammer. The issue I see is that the vent hub is not strong enough to resist the force required to loosen the corroded pipe. I would not waste too much time on it. Cut it flush with a grinder wheel or a sawzall. Then I'd use a small metal blade in a sawzall to cut the inside of the cut off pipe 3 places 120 degrees apart, to the top of the threads. Use a cold chisel to try to break the pipe stub into 3 pieces and knock them out of the vent hub. If that doesn't work, cut to the bottom of the threads. Then use a tap to chase the threads. Use penetrating oil while cutting. Use pipe dope when replacing the cut pipe.

Don't force it, get a bigger hammer.
