|In response to Re: Kitchen Sink Basket; stuck lock nut|
: When it was installed they probably got plumber's putty in the threads and it will not come loose. Use a hacksaw to cut it off even with the bottom of the sink.
: : I'm trying to replace a corroded kitchen sink basket but cannot remove the lock nut underneath. Have tried just about everything except cutting tools (including hammer/screwdriver against the tabs; large groove pliers on it while having the basket held in place on top; WD40 soaked overnight).
: : Any other lubricant I can use to possibly loosen it? If not, how can I break it down (i.e., destroy it) without damaging the stainless steel sink?
: : Stuck in Houston....
Thanks for the help!
