Plumbing advice needed

Handle of a water line under sink broke off
Water main was turned off for now
I just have a couple of adjustable wrenches and alligator clamps
Is this thing removable or do I need to cut the pipe?

Even if I were to cut the pipe I don't think thered be any room to put in a new valve

    Try removing it first.
    Cut pipe remove escutcheon should be room for compression fitting. If you have to break out the drywall who cares you wont see it. Its a shithole anyway.
    Thank me later

      OP clearly the professional has offered safe, timely advice that is feasible for a diy homeowner.
      Soldering however is not.

        I hate this site.
        Go buy a sharkbite angle stop and push it into the pipe after cutting it.
        Are you happy now, was my advice timely and simple enough for the little man with a plumbing problem to comprehend

            No bozo first he suggested this

            looks soldered. heat it up to melt solder and pull the valve off. pull any water out of the pipe with a vaccum cleaner. dont cut it or youll have to bust out the wall. Dont listen to the first reply, you dont have enough pipe to work with to go cutting it.

            Then after being called out by a real pro he offered this

              All the adult boards should have thread specific user IDs like

              [...]

              . It's hard to have a decent shit-flinging cage match when you don't know who said what. And that KEK gay who at least identified himself is as confused as anyone about who said what.

              The only one I can keep track of (other than KEKgay) is that incompetent plumber.

    Is that a copper pipe coming out of the wall? That thing is covered in paint and crap but it could be soldered.

              Even funnier are plumbers that think they are anything besides over priced scumbags

    just call a plumber instead of fricking around and creating a large repair job out of something a pro could have replaced in 15 minutes.

    it's like literally been a week an OP hasn't updated
    but yeah you have two options
    use a torch and heat up the valve and sweat ona new one
    or
    *what i would do
    sawzaw the copper behind the anglestop, clean the burrs and just force ona sharkbite anglestop
    there's enough space and if not just take off the eschutheon and turn it around or leave it off. whatever who fricking looks
    but it seems this is just weird bait since op hasn't responded

    If it were me, you only wish
    I would heat the shut off until it slips off the pipe.
    Then push a shark bite shutoff onto the line.
