I belong to a little brick bungalow in the midwest, built in
'54, old-style plaster on steel mesh lath.
Recently found that kitchen and both drain pipes were sealed
behind wall. Had to bust thru kitchen wall (tile and plaster)
to replace drain pipe.
I found that the "plaster" was more the consistency and hardness
of concrete than any plaster I seen before ...
The bath drain is overdue to roll over and die. The drain is
in a partition wall opposite a bedroom closet. To gain
access, I'd likely need to cut a large section of the
closet wall out.
It's actually strange I've never bought a sawzall, but
I've always got along with a little scroll-jig saw. Have
built partition walls but never needed to rip thru old
walls, chop thru roof, etc.
Anybody familiar with cutting the old style plaster?
Q1: Can I do it with a sawzall? If so what blade? Recall
this "plaster" looks more like flogging concrete.
Q2: If Q1 = yes, would an 8 amp sawzall likely be adequate?
Q3: If Q1 = no, what should I use? Used a hammer/cold-chisel
on the kitchen and it was a SEVERE PITA!
Any/all info/advice much appreciated.
