Tub spout with handheld shower diverter


Hi I have a long pipe coming out of my shower wall for the faucet and diverter to screw on to.
Its a wicked cheasy diverter spout and to get a good metal diverter spoout for my handheld shower I need a half inch pipe thread coming out of my wall a half inch. Is there a way to just cut the pipe down to protrude a half inch from the wall and then tread the pipe? Thankjs

How about just replacing that too long nipple with a shorter one?
Cutting and threading in place is at best a serious PITA.

Nope,.... Not easily anyways,.....

The usual thing to do it unscrew the pipe there, 'n replace it with a shorter nipple,....

I just quote edit to get something that can be addressed.
Sometimes it's what the OP is asking. Sometimes not.

IIR at one time the diverter tub spouts were available for 2 different length 1/2" pipe stub outs. Might pay to check. If you could cut to a half inch and thread you be a much better plumber than I because I could not do that without modifying the tub severely.
