Remove bad fins from cast iron radiators.
I have about 20 radiators with freeze damage. They're fairly ornate, from an 1886 Victorian.
I'm wondering if I'm wasting my time. I would like to remove the bad fins and put them back together. I laid one that has 20 fins on it's side. Its about 38 inches tall. I removed the 3 bad fins. It came apart fairly easily. They all have the original metallic paint on them, so they're not heavily coated with paint.
I'm ready to put it back together.
Do people have much success removing fins and reassembling cast iron radiators. I had someone tell me he's never seen anyone successfully do it.
