Has anybody got any tips for taking down a cast iron stack. We need to
replace ours with plastic. plan number one was to whack it with a lump
hammer and hope it breaks into small enough pieces to carry down a ladder.
plan number two is to cut it into manageable pieces with an angle grinder.
my main concern is how easy it will break up hitting it with a hammer.
I did this 18 years ago, with a lump hammer and working off a ladder. It
wasn't a lot of fun. For safety, if for no other reason, it would be much
better to work off a scaffolding tower or similar platform. The iron does
break up quite easily but wear goggles, gloves and ear defenders!
