  • Replacing Ridgid 12R Dies- Confused

    I am not a pro, just farm maintenance. I dont know which type of NPT die to buy, HSS or Alloy as I dont know their intended uses. I am using a 700 pony. Thanks

    Re: Replacing Ridgid 12R Dies- Confused

    The difference between alloy and high speed dies is the material they are made of. High speed dies are made of high speed tool steel, while alloy dies are made of alloy steel. I recommend high speed dies in situations where a lot of continuous threading is being done, or tougher materials are being threaded. In most other cases alloy dies will suffice.
    I hope this helps.
