    Looks like copper to iron... The hack likely sawzalled the iron at tearout and got stumped when it came time to reconnect.

    Yes, it is copper to iron. 1 of many of these couplings. I could get back to threads on all but one of them, but had to use a dressler coupling to fix one.

    That clamp on the left kinda reminds me of how my belt looks when I leave the pizza buffet.
