I have a two basin stainless steel kitchen sink. Whoever installed it did not use or properly apply plumbers putty and both sides leak. I went to replace it with a new strainer but can not get the old one off.
I've tried grasping it with different tools to keep it from spinnig but the nut just will not budge. I believe it's plastic so I've considered trying to just cut into it with a chizel or even a hot knife.
Do I need a special tool to help me remove it without damaging the sink or the trap and other plumbing underneath?
