Keith: Taking a sledge hammer to a cast iron tub
can get you some results that only a doctor or village priest can help you with. When a piece of
that old tub flys off, it can be traveling in excess of 700 MPH. A one ounce piece of this cast iron schrapnell will have a kinetic energy sufficient to imbed it'self in your brain or other important body addresses.
In short smashing a cast iron tub with a sledge hammer in a small room is the height of dumb.
By removing sufficient tile, it is possible to remove an old tub and live to tell about it.

Is there any type of saw that can be used to cut up a tub in two or three pieces?

: Is a sledge hammer the only way to break it up?
