    Can anyone tell me if you need to use a special die to thread aluminum conduit?

    Re: Aluminum Conduit

    I have not threaded much of it, but when I have I did not us any thing special, jsut regular ridgid pipe dies for my 12R or 11R heads . some times on aluminum using ws40 or kerosene helps over oil (at lest on my milling machine).
    there is another discussion and seems a little more to the point, the basic statement is to use new and sharp dies.

    these suppliers say "Threading – Sharp dies and conventional cutting oil should be used."

    this place is the same, some more info on the page
