    Im having trouble removing this faucet set. I've never encountered anything like it before and can't figure out how to remove it easily.

    As can be seen in some pics i resorted to cutting the brass in 2 places with a dremel multi max and metal cutting balde which allowed me to remove one faucet. This was a lot of work, blunted the blade and was very messy.

    I originally thought all the brass pieces underneath were brazed into place after being dropped in from the top. But after looking closer at them after removal im not so sure about that.

    Anyone have any suggestions on how to remove the rest. I also have a second set to remove on the other sink so would like to avoid cutting altogether.

    Thanks friends.

    if that worked keep going ...I think the spout has a threaded nipple if the parts aren't moving just cut the rest out......

    I believe you take that spout off with a long allen wrench. Look down the hole and see if there is one.
