    I recently bought a house in Croatia and the bathroom includes a bidet but with a broken mixer tap. With some difficulty I removed the old tap but the new one also comes with its own waste fittings and plug mechanism. The old waste is proving to be much more difficult to remove. It seems to be made of chrome plated brass, threaded so the plug hole part screws into the lower section that fits the trap. I got the trap off but when I turn the lower half of the waste the whole thing turns. There is no way to grip the upper part to stop it turning. I tried attacking the flange round the plug hole with a drill but the metal seems hard and the drill made little impression. I could perhaps grind it off with the Dremel but that would take many hours. Any suggestions? I have already done too much damage to continue using the old part.

    Thanks, the tool in the link does not look strong enough, as the parts are probably locked together by limescale but I might be able to make something with iron pipe and bolts to do the same job. :)

    The chrome plating is hard - get through that in 1 place with the dremel and the rest will be easier - have lots of discs ready
