Hoping someone out there can recognize this...
I'm trying to remove an old faucet from this sink and ive run into an interesting thin nut that is caulked in place. Is there a special wrench out there that would fit what is in the picture?
It's called a basin wrench.http://www.plumbingsupply.com/tools.html#telescopingwrench
Hi John. I have a standard basin wrench but this nut is too wide and thin for it. I guess it's not obvious from the picture. I can come back with a rough diameter laterbit I think it is around 2 1/2 inches
A basin wrench will fit it. I have done it many times. What you have is not unusual.
Yeah definitely basin wrench, I like the ones that you can extend. Makes it much easier to deal with different clearances under a sink
If you don't learn something new everyday at work, it's not even worth going.
Yeah, a basin wrench.
But am I the only guy who absolutely HATES basin wrenches? When you gotta use them, you gotta, but I always hate the experience.
