Re: demo 100 year old claw foot tubes
Before you smash and trash, you might see if there is an architectural salvage in the area that would buy/come get them. It might be worth finding an extra set of hands to get them out. Beyond that, wear long sleeves and pants, face, eyes, ear protection included, and have at it with a sledge hammer. As to the radiators, I've never dealt with one to know if a sledge will reduce them.
