  • Torn up threads

    I am using a 700 power threader with 12r dies and am having problems with the threads getting torn up. I rarely thread, when I started a few years ago I never had problems and now multiple dies are giving me problems. I use a constant oil bath, have hand spun the dies onto factory threads with the top screws loose and they bottom out. Is the quality of Iron lesser?

      I have seen this at HD when getting some pipe threaded for pipe clamps. The guys there are no experts in threading but he told me that it is hit and miss with threading, if one pipe chips toss it and try another piece.

        a piece of thread could cause the die to not thread right but if you try it again and it still does not thread right then change the dies

          the pipe quality is definatly going down hill and so are the fittings... poor castings on malable 90s and the threads are appearing to be poorly made... i know you mentioned the oil bath but maybe there is a swarf in there tearing your threads to bits? have fun

            Make sure the dies have not moved. Make sure the screws are tight and the dies are in there properly
