I bought this extractor this morning to remove a broken 1/2" gal. pipe. It simply did not work! The part of the tool that was supposed to grip the pipe was too short and limited by a shoulder near the end that needed to be turned. Because of the shoulder the grip was limited and the tool only bored out the pipe rather than gripping it so it could be unscrewed. Because this tool was so useless and I had already turned off the water and broken the pipe I needed to call a plumber. They fixed it with the right tool in 15 min. and for 10x the cost of the tool.
It's going back to Home Depot in the morning.

Bought despite bad reviews. Used it to extract fuel filter nipple that broke off inside carburetor so it is a very sensitive area. Took a couple of tries and easy raps with a hammer to get it to bite but it worked. You can see me use it on Matt's Garage episode 1.11 or 1.12 (not sure which yet).

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Oregon Fits iron pipe. DOES NOT FIT PVC PIPE
Fits into iron pipe. IT DOES NOT FIT INTO PVC PIPE, which of course, is the stuff that breaks, so that you need a tool like this.

This product might work on metal pipe but does not work on PVC to metal.

Purchased to remove broken stub of shower tube from drop ell. Extractors are made to work inside "iron pipe sized" material. Will not work on "Copper Tube Size" pipe. Will keep for possible future use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HD76018 Removed Brass Nipple in Minutes
I bought this in spite of the many poor reviews. My need was to remove a brass nipple from a watet pump outlet. I had tried every type of pliers in my toolbox but the nipple wouldn't budge. This tool allowed me to remove the nipple in only a few minutes.

Needed to extract a quick connect fitting that had broken off in truck radiator. Extractor teeth bit into aluminum fitting and it came out without any problem. Great buy!
