I forgot to add one is snapped and two or three are stripped. So it's worse than I thought.

From there I...

Was going to start yesterday, but we decided to grab an oxy acetylene torch sometime today.

Some say a propane torch isn't hot enough, I have a lot of reading up to do before I even touch it.
