    I need to solvent weld a tee into a 40mm waste pipe. The pipe has been painted with what looks like gloss paint. If I sand this off, will I be able to successfully s/weld the tee on?

    Thanks for any advice.

    Yes needs to be totally paint free and give it a wipe with some

    Iso alcohol to remove any dust / wet cloth if you haven't any ISO

    And wait for it to be totally dry before gluing anything

    Thanks for your reply. I'll give it a go.

    Does it have to be Isopropyl, or will white spirit do?

    If you use a junior hack saw. by using the back of the blade.
    Stick the pipe through the frame and blade and scrap down as if with a knife, if it take more than a minuet somethings wrong.
