  • There is no easy way to remove such a stop with a typical set of tools. - If you have access to a tool shop, with lathes and such, you stand a chance. There *is* a special tool that clears out a "hub" using a drill...which you don't want to buy because of the cost. https://www.homedepot.com/p/JONES-STEPHENS-4-in-Socket-Saver-J44400/302575480 and because it's designed for DWV rather than SCH 80. The obvious solution is to buy a "slip" ("no-stop") coupling instead. https://www.supplyhouse.com/Spears-829-040NS-4-PVC-Schedule-80-Coupling-No-Stop Now, all of that being said...**IF** I absolutely had to remove that stop, and I had to use tools that I have or that were readily available for a reasonable price at a hardware store, I would probably use a long half-round rasp. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Nicholson-8-in-Woodcraft-Half-Round-Rasp-23859LNN/206710011 Probably how I would do it is ***mount the file upright*** in a vise and slide the inside of the coupling carefully over the rounded side of the rasp. You're going to scratch the crap out of the inside surface of the coupling, but if you're careful it should remove very little material other than the stop itself, and the glue should still bond with the coupling in a leak-free manner.
