Comments about ACE HARDWARE Ace 1/2in Nipple Extractor:

I work at a small facility with a steam boiler for heat. I am replacing several radiator steam valves and thought this extractor would pay for itself in the close and short nipples I could reuse.

This tool twisted apart on first use at the cam cut (didn't budge nipple). At present there is only one other review, it is accurate as to the fit and finish of this piece. If you really need an internal nipple wrench save yourself the aggravation and shop elsewhere for a quality tool. I have used many of these over the years that belonged to various facility's and when they are quality they work great. Not this one. Ace product #44501

    Comments about ACE HARDWARE Ace 1/2in Nipple Extractor:

    This extractor has a design flaw that prevents it's use for PVC or other plastic pipe nipples.
    The cam lobe does not allow the gripper to rotate so that it is flush with the rest of the splined shaft.
    I have a similar tool, sized for 3/4 pipe, that does rotate flush. That allows it to be used for plastic and metal pipes. I don't recall where I sourced that one. It doesn't have the same finish as the ACE units and has a different stamping.
