    hoping for some help. does the head have to be machined "larger"? can this specialty head be purchased?

    dug welcome to the forum

    you can order the correct die heads for plastic coated pipe/ gas pipe.

    here are the part # for the larger 12-r threader.

    1/2'' = 51857
    3/4''= 51862
    1''= 51867
    1.25''= 51872
    1.5''= 51877
    2''= 51882

    of course if you have an extra set of dies, you can always machine/ ream them larger to accept the plastic coated pipe. paint them green or yellow to match the gas pipe you're using them on and you won't confuse them for regular dies.

    fortunately a bench top machine will automatically strip the plastic as it has no follower.

    stick around and grab a bite to eat. you're going to be here awhile

    phoebe it is
