Two reasons you cannot make this longer yourself : 1. non standard thread and size ( nor 1/4" too small nor 5/16" too large) 2. reverse threaded to not come off when removing nipple (reverse threaded rods not typically /easily found)
As long as it is threaded, rather than glued, on the other end. If it is glued you may be able to drill out the broken section and reglue a new nipple in its place. A plumbing specialty house should have the tool.
No. Or most likely no, the copper pipe is probably soldered.
Trie the broken bolt extractor http://www.homedepot.com/p/URREA-1-8-in-to-3-4-in-Pouch-Set-of-Spiral-Bolt-Extractors-Screws-5-Piece-9500B/202797902 I would think one of those would work.
That should work as long as it will reach down far enough. On the new one use a few wraps of Thread Seal tape so it doesn't happen in the future.
coach, this extractor is only for removing male threaded nipples and unglued pipe. It will not remove pipe that has already been glued.
If its plastic I'd say youd have a shot. Otherwise if it's any kind of metal I'd say no. There are other tools to remove metal fittings from the inside though.
