In my plumbing exploits, which really should be documented on video, I’ve learned the following:
- Brass fittings strip easily.
- No matter how sure footed you think you are, when doing the splits between the top of a bar stool and a two by four bracing the hallway drywall suspended over a stack of paint cans and a mop bucket, applying torque to a monkey wrench that is above your head will cause you to fall down.
- Swinging a two foot steel bar with your left hand against a drop forged pipe wrench (often mistaken for a monkey wrench) being held with your right hand is a mistake if you are not left handed.
Last time I did this, this plug came out much easier. Surely I’m doing something wrong.
